On 7th October 2023, another dartboard event, another first.  I think I’ve lost count of my Covid 19 and Flu vaccinations, particularly the latter which has been going on for 20+ years.  But this year was the first time I received both vaccinations at the same time. This is known in healthcare circles as ‘coadministration’ and is widespread practice.  Both references below (UK and US) confirm this strategy. 

Coadministration of Covid-19 and Flu is new on the basis that Covid-19 is relatively new.  Clearly a sign of the times but from what I’ve read and studied, it’s safe and effective with no compromise in the efficacy of the vaccines.

There are no contraindications with these vaccines and any of my Neuroendocrine Cancer medications, or indeed any of my medications. 24 hours after the double injection, I can confirm only minor injection site pain was experienced. 

I had them in the same arm

In 2012, I had nine left axillary lymph nodes removed of which five tested positive for NET.  This area had been lighting up on nuclear scan (In111 Octreoscan).  Following that surgery, I was advised to avoid the use of my left arm for injections and even after 13 years, I still follow that advice. 

So, when I read up on coadministration using the same arm, I found that it’s also common practice for this type of scenario. I referenced both UK and US authorities and both mention it as safe as long as there is at least one inch (2.54cm) distance between the shots.  And without prompting my GP earlier today, that is exactly what he told me he would do. 

I only mentioned two references earlier but clearly your own country or state authority will have similar advice.  Check it out.

A cup of tea

I would also mention those who contributed to my “Tea Fund” which resides on PayPal.  You don’t need a PayPal account as you can select a card but don’t forget to select the number of units first (i.e. 1 = £4, 2 = £8, 3 = £12, and so on), plus further on, tick a button to NOT create a PayPal account if you don’t need one.  Clearly, if you have a PayPal account, the process is much simpler 

Through your generosity, I am able to keep my sites running and provide various services for you.  I have some ideas for 2023 but they are not detailed enough to make announcements yet. 

This screenshot is from every single post on my website and depending on which machine you are using, it will either be top right of the post or at the bottom (my posts are often long, so scroll down!)

I love comments - feel free!
