Flu Shot

I Am A Contractor And Work At Different Companies. Two Of The Companies Are Giving Flu Shots For Free To The Individuals. They Are About A Week Apart. If I Take Them Both Will It Hurt Me Or Help Me?

Re: Flu Shot

As far as I know, all you need is ONE per year.

Re: Flu Shot

You only need one each year, but getting two wont hurt you or really benefit you either. It's an inactivated vaccine (if you get the shot, not the spray) so you shouldn't have any problem getting vaccinated twice. (Sometimes I've gotten one in October and another one in January or February).
