So I'm on Imuran, Remicade, and Entocort. I'm obviously immunocompromised. I need the hep B vaccine to start my nursing classes. Since Hep B is a live vaccine, can I get it? I know we are supposed to stear clear of those, but I have no choice. No vaccine=no classes. I've worked so hard to get into the nursing program through this illness that it seems ridiculous that a vaccine will prevent me from doing this.
Any suggestions? Anyone get the vaccine?
