As flu season gets underway, some Marylanders are wondering whether to get the flu shot and the new COVID-19 booster shot at the same time. The Maryland Hospital Association is encouraging everyone who is eligible to get the COVID-19 booster shot as soon as possible. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people can get both a COVID-19 booster shot and the flu shot at the same time. But should you? Dr. Miriam Alexander, with Sinai Hospital, said there's no evidence there's a risk to getting the shots at the same time.
