Most vaccines are dead viruses. I would check with your doctor and see what they say. Good luck!

I just returned from a cruise to Mexico.  about 4-6 weeks before leaving I got the flu shot, H1N1, and a pnemonia shot.  I had no problems with them.  The virus's are not live so there should not be any side effects except maybe a little irritation at the injection site.
You should get your innoculations at least 3-4 weeks out so you build up your immunity.
Have fun!
