I have always gotten my flu shot every year, and since my diagnosis Im on the list of people who get it early, especially because Im on immune supressing drugs right now. I got mine with the first shipment they got at Childrens. My doctors all think its really important especially when on meds that lower your immune system to get the flu shot because it will be much easier to catch the flu and then twice as hard to fight it off. NEVER get the live version though, on immune lowering drugs or not. I've heard that is a big no no. I would definately talk to your doc about it but I think flu shots are a good idea.
