Hello. Thank you for posting.

The CDC does not recommend giving two "live" vaccines on the same day. That means the organisms are live but weakened. As far as the flu shot (the virus is dead) so you can get this shot on the same day as the shingles shot. Check with your pharmacist on this as well.
