2:18 min
  • The Public Health Agency says people needing a seasonal flu shot and a booster dose of a Covid-19 vaccine can get them simultaneously.
  • Booster shots are available to those over 80 or those living in elderly care homes or receiving care at home. Those same groups are also strongly encouraged to get a seasonal flu shot.
  • The agency says giving both shots at the same time doesn't appear to impact their effectiveness or a patient's health.
