“People often wonder, can the body ‘handle’ two vaccines simultaneously? The answer is yes, and we do this all the time.'
The CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices offered several updated recommendations regarding seasonal flu vaccine s, most notably the safety of coadministration of COVID-19 and influenza vaccines.
Several UpdatesThe recommendations have other important updates. First, the flu vaccines has been updated so they are designed to protect against four different flu viruses.The agency also changed the recommended timing of flu vaccination for some groups of people, including pregnant people in the
; non-pregnant adults, and children who need two doses (those age 6 months through 8 years who have never received a flu vaccine or who have not received a lifetime total of at least 2 doses).Coadministration The FocusYet it was the new recommendation regarding simultaneous COVID-19 and flu vaccines that dominated the update. Although Grohskopf said there is little data surrounding the idea, experience with other vaccine combinations has show that both immune response and potential side effects are similar when given alone or with other vaccines.
“Based on this prior experience, we do not anticipate any unusual or unexpected safety problems with giving COVID-19 vaccines and flu vaccines at the same time,” she said.And while Americans are now free to get both vaccines at the same time, Grohskopf was quick to point out that neither vaccine should be delayed. headtopics.com
“Ideally,” she said, “people should get their flu vaccines by the end of October. If COVID-19 booster shots are approved by FDA and recommended by ACIP, some Americans will not be eligible for their third dose of COVID-19 vaccine until later. People should go ahead and get their flu shot and then schedule their COVID-19 vaccine at the proper time.”
Andrew Noymer, PhD, did not see any problems with giving the COVID-19 and flu vaccines at the same time.“The seasonal flu shot is very well tolerated, as is the COVID shot,” commented Noymer, of the Department of Population Health & Disease Prevention at the University of California, Irvine. He was not involved in preparing the CDC recommendations.
In an interview, Noymer said, “People often wonder, can the body ‘handle’ two vaccines simultaneously? The answer is yes, and we do this all the time. TheMMR vaccinegiven to children is, in fact, a cocktail of three vaccines, and the MMRV is a cocktail of four. So I'm not concerned by dual administration of influenza and COVID vaccines.
“The reason for the recommendation of both at once is attrition: some people who intend to come back for their second shot wind up just skipping it. Thus, do them both at once.” Read more: WebMD »
