Safe to give COVID-19 and flu vax together: study

Six combinations tested — timing had no negative impacts on immune response or side effects

A UK clinical trial has found it's safe for patients to to have the coronavirus and flu vaccines at the same time, finding side effects were mainly mild to moderate.

There were also no negative impacts on the immune response produced by either vaccine when both were given on the same day in opposite arms, according to the Combining Influenza and COVID-19 Vaccination (ComFluCov) study.

Researchers say the results reinforce current UK coronavirus booster vaccine guidance, which is for both vaccines to be given together
