I have been told by my doctors at Childrens to NEVER get the live vaccines, or anything that you get up the nose (there's a nasal flu vaccine). I know because I get the flu vaccine every year and I have asked before if I got it anywhere other than my rheumy at Childrens because we are not supposed to get live vaccines because they can make us more sick. I would ask for another opinion.
•Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) Vaccine - This is a live vaccine and it is recommended that people with Lupus do NOT get this vaccine, contact with the diseases should be avoided, family members and those you come into contact with regularly getting vaccinated can help protect you
