My GI insists that I get a flu shot every year and that everyone that lives in my house also gets one. The one year in the last 10 that I did not get a flu shot I was very, very ill with the flu. Please note, at that time I was NOT on any immunosuppressants. After that hellish experience, I always get my flu shot. Now convincing my daughter to get one is another thing. She got the flu last year, was out of work 8 days and lost 12 pounds [the only positive thing.]
I really think it is your decision Lisa though I would probably give some serious thought to what your doctor said since he knows your complete medical history.
