As the flu season approaches and coincides with millions of Americans newly eligible for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine booster, with expert backing for boosters developed by Moderna and J&J, many may wonder whether it’s safe to receive both a booster and a flu vaccine in one visit.

"Flu vaccines and COVID-19 vaccines can be given at the same time," the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states on its webpage. The health agency advises providers to administer vaccines into different injection sites at least 1 inch apart to differentiate between any local reactions.

"Certainly, if a person has any concerns, they can take them at different times," Dr Aaron Glatt, chief of infectious diseases at Mount Sinai South Nassau, told Fox News. "Likewise, there is no reason to wait 14 days [between vaccinations], like it was originally recommended, after getting either vaccination."

Not as much if you move your arms.  Also, massaging your arms help.  Just like the DTP shot.
