COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

IPU Newsletter 1

Co-administration of Vaccines

We have received queries from members regarding the co-administration of the seasonal influenza vaccine and the COVID-19 bivalent booster vaccines when only one arm is available for administration.

As it is not known if COVID-19 vaccine reactogenicity is increased with co-administration, NIO has advised that vaccines should preferably be administered in different limbs. Therefore, it is advised to either schedule a second appointment for the patient or alternatively administer the second vaccine i.e., seasonal influenza vaccine, in the vastus lateralis muscle in the anterolateral aspect of the thigh if you are familiar with this site. For further information please refer to the immunisation guidelines.
