Flu shots – it’s the time of year

Have you had your flu shot yet? If you are on immunosuppressants, regardless of your age, your GP should be offering you a flu vaccination as a matter of course. I speak from experience when I say that this does not necessarily happen.

I know there is debate amongst some of our members, but I for one, have never had any ill-effect from having the vaccination and I certainly haven’t caught flu either. I had mine last Tuesday.

This is something you should discuss with your GP because it may depend on what medication you are on and other health issues but we believe it’s an option which is not very likely to have a serious ill affect, but obviously it is up to you.

  1. Thanks Annie for the reminder and your viewpoint. I was indeed wondering what I should do regarding this matter, as I have Cellcept as a (twice) daily sweet.

  2. Yes, A reminder for this is a good thing. I am new with this but my doctor also suggest I take the pneumonia shot and since I had not had a tetanus shot for a long while he suggested I take that shot also.
