Combining Flu Shots? Study says it's possible

NEW YORK - Researchers at Columbia University, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say it's okay to give young children the flu and pneumococcal vaccines at the same time.

The study, which looked at children between six-and-23 months old found that giving the vaccines simultaneously does increase the risk of fever.

But the fever usually goes away quickly.

The CDC recommends getting the shots at the same time, if your child is due for the vaccines.
