Around this time every year a new discussion is started on the decision to get a flu shot or not. Here is the current CDC ( Center for Disease Control in the USA) information on Flu Vaccines. There is also a sticky near the top of this forum with links to the Lupus Foundation and other Lupus Experts with their information on Flu Shots with Lupus.

Take care,

Hi Karen,

I've already gotten mine. I am hoping they guessed correctly when they made the vaccine this year.

Anybody that has been newly diagnosed or is on a new medication might also want to discuss with their doctor what type of over the counter medications they could take if they do become ill. Just because something is over the counter doesn't mean it is safe to take with all medications.

Take care,
Lazylegs

I am going to my primary care doctor today and will ask for the flu shot and the pneumonia shot too.

I just hope I don't get sick from them. My husband got the flu shot and got really sick from it.:eek::eek::eek:

Hello Karol
I hope you are OK with the vaccine. A few people do feel a bit off for a day or two but the medical opinion is that this is preferable to the more probable serious effects of getting the flu.

Er .. I'll whisper this - Raglet is not Australian. Despite her claims to be from Planet Andromeda she's the other sort of antipodean, a New Zealander. I think it's rather like the Canada/USA business. :rotfl:

Many hugs
Clare
