2021 Flu Vaccinations now available for ages 6 months and up.
Vaccination against influenza (flu) remains very important this year. Flu is a highly contagious viral infection that can cause widespread illness and deaths every year. 𝐕𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐝𝐞𝐟𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐚𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭 𝐟𝐥𝐮 𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐮𝐬𝐞𝐬.
Behaviours such as increased hand washing and social distancing helped to stop the spread of flu viruses in the community last year. Relaxing social distancing restrictions this year may allow flu viruses to recirculate, even if they were hardly seen in 2020.

Vaccination experts recommend waiting 14 days between getting a flu vaccine and a COVID-19 vaccine. Given this, it will be important to plan both vaccinations.
It doesn’t matter in what order you get the vaccines.
