What could be a tough flu season is approaching and officials are urging Minnesotans to get their annual shot well ahead.  State Health Department’s Kris Ehresmann says if you’re due for a COVID booster, it’s fine to get it at the same time — say at the clinic:

…”Or, if you happen to have gotten, say, a flu shot at the pharmacy and now it’s time for you to get your (COVID) booster, there’s no need to have any sort of interval between receiving those doses.”

But health officials stress, do *not* get a COVID booster sooner than the CDC-recommended time from your initial series.  If any questions, contact your health care provider.
