Concerned About Getting Both The Flu and COVID Vaccine? Central Texans Are Apprehensive
With almost half the state of Texas vaccinated for COVID, and the other half not, you have to assume there is a number of people concerned about taking both vaccines for flu and COVID.
Seeing as though you may suffer normal side effects from taking both, Alex Gibbs from KWTX did an interesting story about Central Texans who are concerned about taking both vaccines, the flu, and the COVID vaccine.
According to his interview with an infectious disease specialist from Baylor Scott and White, both vaccines are responding and creating antibodies that could make you feel sick and have a low temperature.
"Initially, the CDC recommended two weeks in between vaccines but as more information came in, we now know that it’s safe to receive both vaccines at the same time, If you desire it, you can receive both vaccines at the same time,” says Lizbeth Cahuyme Infectious Disease Specialist from Baylor Scott and White.
She also adds that you should know your body and if side effects from previous vaccines persist you may want to wait to get the other one.
Either way, do the proper amount of research before you receive any vaccine.
There will be drive-thru flu shots announced on the Baylor Scott and White website.
Stay safe out there yall!
