Are all of you getting both shots???? The pneumonia and the COVID shots? My husband wants to go get the pneumonia shot like we do every year. But we got the 2 Covid shots . Do we need to get the pneumonia too. I have no reaction with the pneumonia and I didnít have any reaction with the 2 Covid shots. I donít want to mix both shots and have a reaction.for mixing together. Am I wrong in my thinking. Would I be protected with just the Covid shots. Opinions please. Thanks

You don't get the pneumonia shot every year. That's only maybe once every 5 years or something like that.

You get the Flu Shot every year. My husband and I got our Booster shots about a week before we got our Flu Shots.

I got the booster and the flu shot a bit more than a week apart. I received my pneumonia shot and tetanus on the same day.

I think the recommendation is to get the flu and COVID shots several weeks apart. The pneumonia shots are only given every five years if you're under 65 and once after 65, I think.

Bottom line: most docs are recommending both COVID vaccine shots and the booster and the flu shot. Talk with your doc to get good advice from someone who knows you well and can advise you much better than we can.

Exercise not only lets me live, it enables me to have a life.

I just got my Covid Booster last Saturday and plan on getting Flu shot when I see my GP this week.
