Multiple vaccines in one easy visit flu

Did you know the CDC says you can get more than one vaccine at the same time? Stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccine and others like pneumococcal (pneumonia), shingles and more.

How long does the flu shot last & why do I need it every year?

A flu vaccine is needed every year for two reasons. First, a person’s immune protection from vaccination declines over time, so an annual flu vaccine is needed for optimal protection.

Second, because flu viruses are constantly changing, the composition of flu vaccines is reviewed annually and are updated to protect against the viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming flu season. For the best protection, everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated annually. 

Can the flu shot make me sick?

No, flu vaccines cannot cause flu illness. Some people report having mild side effects after flu vaccination, such as:

  • Muscle aches
  • Headaches
  • Low-grade fever
  • Arm pain at the injection site

To help ease the pain and avoid the symptoms, you can take a pain reliever like Tylenol or Ibuprofen for muscle aches, headaches and a low-grade fever.

For arm pain, apply a cool compress and keep your arm moving after the shot.

Can I get a flu shot if I’m pregnant, diabetic or have chronic illnesses?

It’s especially important for certain people to get vaccinated, such as those who are at high risk of developing serious complications like pneumonia if they get sick with the flu. This includes:

  • People who have certain medical conditions including asthma, weakened immune systems, diabetes and chronic heart or lung disease
  • Pregnant women
  • Young children
  • People ages 65+
  • People who live with or care for others who are at high risk for developing serious complications.
