Got my Prevnar 13 vaccine a couple of days ago and the pharmacist will let me know when the first batch of flu vaccines arrive.

There will be plenty of flu vaccines to go around:

The province announced on Wednesday an enhanced fall flu immunization campaign through the purchase of 1,965,000 doses of the flu vaccine.

This is an additional 450,000 doses on top of what was already planned.

B.C. health officials are worried the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with a fall flu season, will lead to an overwhelming strain the health care system.

Got my flu shot this morning. Got my Prevnar 13 shot in early August so I was good to go for receiving the Pneumovax 23 shot today. Pharmacist said I won't need another pneumococcal shot.

Seniors should get both the Prevnar 13 and the Pneumovax 23 vaccines. As their names imply, Prevnar 13 protects against 13 types of pneumococcal bacteria, and the Pneumovax 23 protects against 23 types of pneumococcal bacteria.

So your plan is to die from the flu before you are so old you die from cancer?

You have your information mixed up again. Influenza vaccines can help reduce tumours.
Physicians and scientists at Rush University Medical Center have found that injecting tumors with influenza vaccines, including some FDA-approved seasonal flu shots, turns cold tumors to hot, a discovery that could lead to an immunotherapy to treat cancer. The study results were published December 30th in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The Hunzas, who lived to a hundred, with all their own teeth, no cancer, no diseases, no mental institutes (here we are experiencing a dementia Alzheimer's epidemic) no diabetes, no Autism, no ADHD, no anti-depression pills and
a lot of organic fruits and vegetables and .....

NO FLU SHOTS - and no deaths from the flu even though they lived in crowded rooms in winter
and never heard about masks or hand sanitizers or social distancing.

would disagree with you.

*removed*

The healthiest people in the world did not believe in vaccinations - lived to a hundred. No cancer.

No, they didn't, and has been proven to you before in 2013 - that's 7 years ago. You forgot already?
Oh and 2014 - I'll keep looking. The Hunzas suffered from malaria, dysentery and a whole lot of other things you are well aware of such as rotten teeth, osteoporosis, diabetes, and heart disease. What a shame. No point lying about it - the information is available from the doctor that lived with them for 20 months.
