Get the COVID-19 vaccine and seasonal flu shot at the same time

Gundersen Health System is providing one stop shopping for both the third dose of the COVID vaccine as well as your seasonal flu shot.

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Gundersen Health System is providing one stop shopping for both the third dose of the COVID vaccine as well as your seasonal flu shot. 

Patients who choose to and those who are eligible can get both their flu shot and the third dose of the COVID vaccine in the same appointment. The vaccines will be given at the same time but in separate arms.

Those with Gundersen say that getting vaccinated for the flu is also critical in keeping the public safe and yourself safe. "We think it is even more important this year just because last year we saw a decline in the whole overall reason being we were wearing masks," said clinical manager Shelly Niedfeldt. "Typically after having a low year of flu we see a spike in that the following year so still again really important to get vaccinated for flu this year."

To receive your third dose of the COVID vaccine along with your flu shot you do not need to go to the same Gundersen location where you received your first and second dose.

No appointments are needed for the La Crosse and Onalaska clinics or pharmacies.
