WKYT - Good Question - Headlines

Will it be safe to get both the seasonal flu vaccine and the H1N1 flu vaccine at the same time?

Health officials say yes, not only will it be safe to get both they
recommend it! The seasonal flu shot is being offered right now, the H1N1
vaccine won't be available until later in the fall.
If you wanted to wait, you could get them at the same time but health
leaders urge you not to wait and to go ahead and get the seasonal shot
first and the H1N1 shot when it's available.
One thing to keep in mind, the seasonal shot is just one time while the
H1N1 vaccine could be a series of two shots, with the second coming two
to three weeks after the first.
