Football and flu shots? Fall must be here

by The 100 Companies

Ahhh fall. The return of football, everything pumpkin spice and flu season. If you plan to go to your local pharmacy for a flu shot and the newest COVID vaccine, many are wondering if it’s okay to get them in different arms.

Dr. Ashish Jha, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator thinks it’s a good idea. “I really believe it’s why God gave us two arms.” But several physicians disagree, like pediatrician Sallie Permar who says she’d rather have one sore arm than both. A third option is making two separate appointments.

U.S. flu season typically runs from October to May.
