‘You can get both your flu shot and Covid shot at the same time. It’s actually a good idea. I really believe this is why God gave us two arms,’ Biden’s White House Covid response coordinator Ashish Jha urged Americans.’Millions of Americans got both shots at the same time this winter following a major public health push by the White House,’ reports the Daily Mail.

The FDA is looking into whether there’s an increased risk of stroke after taking a flu jab and Covid booster vaccine on the same day, advice that was promoted by the White House.
The federal agency revealed the investigation after an analysis found “seniors who received both the Pfizer omicron booster and a high-dose or adjuvanted flu vaccine on the same day may have a higher risk of stroke,” CNBC reported Thursday.
“Although the FDA has not identified a stroke risk, the agency is launching a study to examine potential safety concerns that may arise from administering the Covid omicron shots at the same time as the high-dose or adjuvant flu shots,” reported CNBC citing FDA biostatistics deputy director Richard Forshee.

The investigation comes as “Millions of Americans got both shots at the same time this winter following a major public health push by the White House,” according to the Daily Mail.
Heading into winter, Biden’s White House Covid response coordinator Ashish Jha urged Americans on at least two occasions to inject both jabs simultaneously.
“The good news is you can get both your flu shot and Covid shot at the same time. It’s actually a good idea. I really believe this is why God gave us two arms; one for the flu shot and the other one for the Covid shot,” Jha told Americans during a Covid-19 Response Team press conference in September.
Jha made the same recommendation last November ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, telling Americans, “Please, don’t wait. Get your Covid shot. Get your flu shot. That’s why God gave you two arms. Get one in each arm if you want.”
