Booster / Flu vaccines
Booster / Flu vaccines – my staff have queries
My domestic staff have asked if they can have a Covid 19 Booster and Flu jab at the same time to avoid taking time off twice, very admiral, but what is the answer?
They have also said that they are afraid of the flu jab in case it contains a live virus and actually gives them the flu, is this the case?
To answer the second query first, according to the NHS, there are several types of injected flu vaccine. None of them contain live viruses so they cannot give you flu.
To answer the first question, the short answer is that the NHS is advising people to have their booster and flu vaccines at the same time.
Flu vaccination is important at this time after the pandemic.
More people are likely to get flu this winter as fewer people will have built up natural immunity to it during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you get flu and COVID-19 at the same time, research shows you’re more likely to be seriously ill, says the NHS.
While flu is unpleasant for most people, according to the NHS it can be dangerous and even life threatening for some people, particularly those with certain health conditions.
