Is it Safe to Get a Flu Shot and a COVID-19 Vaccine at the Same Time? YES!

Flu Shot Instagram Post webYES! If you’re able to schedule both your flu shot and your COVID-19 booster for the same appointment, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises, it’s safe to do so. “Even though both vaccines can be given at the same visit, people should follow the recommended schedule for either vaccine,” the CDC notes. “If you haven’t gotten your currently recommended doses of COVID-19 vaccine, get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can, and ideally get a flu vaccine by the end of October.”

Monkeypox in North Carolina

Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. Monkeypox virus belongs to the Orthopoxvirus genus in the family Poxviridae. The Orthopoxvirus genus also includes variola virus (which causes smallpox), vaccinia virus (used in the smallpox vaccine), and cowpox virus. Monkeypox is not related to chickenpox.

Due to a very limited supply of Monkeypox vaccine, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) distributed vaccines to seven county health departments, including neighboring Durham County, which serves as the Monkeypox vaccine hub for Orange County. If an Orange County community member has been in contact with a confirmed case of Monkeypox or are experiencing symptoms, they should contact their primary care provider or the local health department. OCHD may be reached at (919) 245-2478. 

Anyone can be infected by monkeypox regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity or any other identity.
