Wanted to pass this on.......According to Dr J, infectious disease/Lyme expert, those with chronic Lyme should NOT get vaccinated by swine flu vaccine or any other live (attenuated vaccines).
Now your family members might consider getting it- but of course that should be individualized and discussed with your docs. Not sure what I will have my family do- generally we do not vaccinate against flu. This is tricky as you do want to minimize any exposure around you to such an ailment.
