The COVID vaccines and influenza vaccines

It is as important this year as any to consider having a dose of the seasonal influenza vaccine. However, scheduling to have this and a dose of a COVID-19 vaccine on the same day is not recommended. Instead, you should plan on a minimal time between your vaccines of 14 days.

Your seasonal influenza vaccine can fit in any order with your 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine: you could have it prior to your first COVID-19 vaccine, between your first and second doses, or on completion of your doses. The main thing is to keep in mind the need for a 14-day interval in between each vaccine.

Along the same lines, if you are due for another vaccine (for example, a hepatitis booster or pertussis vaccine), you should contact us as soon as possible to book that in, so that it is out of the way at least a few weeks before you become eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

There are some circumstances in which your doctor may consider shortening the interval between these two vaccines. If you think this might apply to you plan an appointment with your GP to discuss your situation.
