If you have Covid, it is best to wait until the end of the isolation period and have no symptoms at the time of the seasonal influenza vaccination. If you have the flu: Wait until you are cured. Your GP can advise you when you can receive the vaccination against Covid-19.

What if you are in contact?

If you do not have symptoms, there is nothing to prevent you from getting the flu shot. Just be sure to respect barrier gestures, particularly wearing a mask, and take a screening test two days after your last contact with the sick person, to make sure you’re negative.

If I was recently vaccinated against Covid, should I wait before injecting the flu?

There is no set time limit between the two vaccinations. Moreover, let’s not forget that it is entirely possible to administer vaccines against Covid-19 and against seasonal influenza at once. In this case, the vaccines will be given in two different sites (eg one injection in each shoulder).
