Hi -
 
I was reading the flu shot topic and thought I'd start a new one because this is a little off.  Is it okay to get a flu vaccine while you are flaring and on Prednisone???
 
Thanks!

Yes -- most definitely! It was highly recommended while I was on Pred, and now that I'm on Remi......I make sure to never miss the shot!
