While getting the COVID 19 vaccine is important for your kids, it is also important to keep track of another crucial vaccine–annual flu shot. Regardless of the season, make sure to get your kids vaccinated to protect them from infections and diseases.
A Flu Shot is Still Important Even If Your Kid Gets the COVID-19 Vaccine?
Yes, it is. A flu vaccine will not offer protection against COVID 19. And a COVID-19 vaccine will not make your kid immune to the flu. COVID-19 and influenza are both infections that trouble a person’s breathing. But they are happened because of different viruses.
While influenza is caused by influenza viruses, COVID 19 is caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The COVID-19 vaccines are meant to fight against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Flu vaccines help you fight the influenza viruses that are likely to outbreak during the flu season.
However, both are highly infectious diseases. That’s why you need to get vaccinated for both infections.
Can Your Kid Take Flu and COVID-19 Vaccines at the Same Time?
According to KidsHealth.org, it is safe to get Flu and COVID 19 Vaccines at the same time. Getting both vaccines at the same time can save you time consumed by visiting the doctor.
Moreover, your kids will feel any vaccine-related pain at once. It is also worth mentioning that kids already get some routine vaccines for various infections in a single shot, including tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (DTaP) vaccine.
Doctors also administer multiple shots in one visit. Don’t worry! The immune system can handle them.
