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???

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!

Remicade - will have my 19th infusion on November 1.
Imuran - 100 mgs....taken before bedtime
Vitamin B-12/Biotin, Probiotics
