I'm considering going ahead and getting the flu shot soon (I ususally do each year) and wondered if anyone had already gotten theirs.  I know they are combining the H1N1 and the other possible flu virus injections into one and I just kind of wondered if there were any additional problems that anyone had experienced.
Also, do you guys think it is safe to get it this quickly after the bladder surgery?   It's been about two weeks (I think).
Thanks Guys!

  I already had the H1N1 last year, so I suppose it is ok to get it again?

      Our company just put out notice today, that they will be giving them here in Oct.

Our local Wal-Mart, is giving them out now, and will do so through Nov.

I am understanding it to be a 3 in 1 shot, I will be getting mine in the next day or two. My sister has had hers already and she had no problems. One thing we both do when getting flu shots is after getting it for the next 24 hrs we take tylenol and have never had a problem.

How soon after being on predisone is it safe to get it? It warned about taking live virus shots after taking it.
I'm going next week to get the flu shot, Tdap, and pneumonia.

The flu shot is not a live virus.

All flu shots are three in one-every year-the only thing that changes is the three flu strains in the shot.
The injection is not live virus the nasal mist is-if you are on immune suppresents you should not get the nasal mist.

Just got mine today. I've never had any problems in the past & don't expect to have any this time.

       I do not get mine for couple weeks yet. We schedule yearly check-ups at flu shot / vaccination time. So, get the girls check-ups & vaccinations. Then go over for our general check-up/blood work and flu shots. Just works out easier that way. Plus, the girls seem to not be so scared when they know mommy and daddy are getting shots too.

I got mine weeks ago! I don't get along very well w/ the flu, last time I had it about 10 years ago, it almost killed me! I get my shot as soon as they start offering it! I hate > "Da Flu"!!!!!!!!!!
When I was young & stupid I broke almost every bone in my body and I'm paying a heavy price now but I'm still here and so glad to see my two sons grow up to be fine young men, both are in the Navy. I'm so proud! My biggest health problem>> I'm a certified Luny~Tune!!
