For clarity the changes are as follows:

17-July-2021 version was:

29.  At present, the Green Book chapter on the COVID-19 vaccine states that administration of the COVID-19 vaccine should ideally be scheduled with an interval of at least 7 days to another vaccination (including influenza) in order to avoid incorrect attribution of potential adverse events8. Booster vaccines for COVID-19 are currently under consideration, with trials underway to ascertain whether co-administration of COVID-19 and influenza vaccines will be permissible, subject to the advice of JCVI. Early evidence on the concomitant administration of COVID-19 and influenza vaccines used in the UK, supports the delivery of both vaccines at the same time where appropriate.

28-July-2021 version is:

29. Booster vaccines for COVID-19 are currently under consideration, with trials underway to ascertain whether co-administration of COVID-19 and influenza vaccines will be permissible, subject to the advice of JCVI.
