I was given the 1st of a series of three vaccinations for gardisil back in April. I take remicade and after doing some research on how I'm not supposed to be getting live vaccinations, i don't really think I want to go in for the 2nd round. What would you guys recommend?

Also, what are your thoughts on getting the h1n1 vaccination?

Thanks :)

I don't believe that Gardasil is a live virus vaccination. In theory it should not cause a problem for you since you are on Remicade. The one caveat that I read that you might want to discuss with your doctor is that people that are immunocompromised might have a diminished response to Gardasil. That means that it might not fully protect you. Before deciding to discontinue your vaccinations, I would strongly encourage you to talk to your primary care provider.

I have had the gardisil shots while being on Remicade. It was fine my doctor said to wait and have a two week period before and after the remicade just to be safe. I had it done two years ago and I am still alive and the problems I've had have only been from crohns no reprocussions.
