Just got your Covid booster and aren't sure when you can get your Flu Shot?
If you’re 5 and older, it’s safe to get an influenza vaccine before, after or at the same time as a COVID-19 vaccine. As a precaution, children 6 months to 4 years (or those aged 5 who receive a Moderna COVID-19 vaccine) need to wait 14 days between their influenza vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine.
