We were asked on our PM webinar about giving Flu/C-19/Pneumo all together. We've had the reply below from NHSE SE Screening and Imms team:

In answer to your question, I would advise that Covid, LAIV and PPV can be co-administered. I refer to Chapter 14a page 40 of the Green Book for the evidence (COVID-19 greenbook chapter 14a (

Based on the evidence above, and, as COVID-19 vaccines are considered inactivated (including the non-replicating adenovirus vaccine), where individuals in an eligible cohort present having recently received one or more inactivated or another live vaccine, COVID-19 vaccination should still be given. The same applies for other live and inactivated vaccines where COVID-19 vaccination has been received first or where a patient presents requiring two or more vaccines. It is generally better for vaccination to proceed to avoid any further delay in protection and to avoid the risk of the patient not returning for a later appointment. This includes but is not limited to vaccines commonly administered around the same time or in the same settings (including pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine and shingles vaccine in those aged over 65 years, pertussis-containing vaccines and influenza vaccines in pregnancy, and LAIV, HPV, MenACWY and Td-IPV vaccines in school age children).
