4. I currently have a cold so I can’t get a flu shot
You can still get a flu shot even while you’re under the weather with a cold. “If you have a cold, your body is already mounting an immune response so it’s a good time to get the flu vaccine because your body is already in antibody production mode,” says Dr. Kerr. This revved up production of antibodies will help your body expedite its protection against the influenza virus.
