Anyone react poorly to the flu shot while on Humira? I took it when I was on Remicade last year and didn't have any problems, but am a bit more worried this time around.

make sure that you get the inactive or "killed" vaccine. I had the shot and on humira- no problems

Yup, I called to make sure it wasn't a live vaccine. When in relation to your next injection did you get the shot?

i think it was a couple of days after the humira, but it shouldn't make a difference
