Got my flu shot today

The flumax for seniors. Not just for flu but you have to wait 28 days after any immunization to receive another. I wanted to have no delays in getting my Covid-19 booster when they’re approved. (Got my second Pfizer on March 20, 2021).

1. Us too!

Same reason. However saw this on WebMD:

"Q: For now, the flu vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine are single products. If you get them separately, is it better to put some time between the two?

Pavia: We don't know. There are studies that probably won't be out in time to decide in September. They are looking at whether you get an equivalent immune response if you give them together or apart.

For now, I would say the advantage of getting them together is if you do get side effects, you'll only get them once ― one day to suffer through them. Also, it's one trip to the doctor."

Confusing stuff. But glad I'm partly there.

2. My clinic didn't have the flu shots yet. I'll sign up for the booster 8 AM the day I become

eligible. If the flu shot slows me up a little, no big deal. I'm at about zero risk with my level of lockdown.

3. Same here, same seniors flumax

No line at Costco to get the shots, so we thought we'd beat the rush and get it out of the way today.

4. Great. Those who don't have pneumonia vaccine also should get one.

A lot of people dying of Covid are dying of "Covid pneumonia." And most who die of the flu actually die of pneumonia.

There are two separate vaccines, both desirable, but they can't be given at once. Last year I got the Pneumovax and was told I had to wait another year to get the other one.
