Can you administer the flu shot and the Shingles vaccination at the same time?

Re: Vaccinations

I wouldn't do them at the same time.
I have flu shot and pneumonia shot at the same time, but this is common.

Re: Vaccinations

Yes, there should be no problem. The flu shot is given in the upper arm and is a inactivated vaccine - and can be given with any other vaccine. The shingles vaccine is a LIVE vaccine and would probably be given in the opposite arm (but not necessary) and given in the fatty tissue in the back of the upper arm. They can both be given simultaneously at the same visit.
