think about the reverse situation. suppose there is a shot for the whatever virus.

do you think the flu will step aside while you go to get your shot for the other virus?

on this 5th of October the WHO announced it's best estimate indicate that roughly 1 in 10 people in the world may have been infected by the corona virus.

that's 10% of the world population. given that they say than there are 1,1 million victims.

that makes it 0,14% mortality rate which is on ranks of seasonal flu (0,1-0,2%)

take the next statement with a grain of salt, but i can (me, for my self, for my personal speculations) easily imagine halve the 1,1 million being victims to the flu or other illness, given how easy was to declare someone victim to "the virus"...

i'd say (me, for my self), i better go out for a shot of flu and get "the virus", then go out for "the shot of the virus" and get the flu.

either way it doesn't come out good.
