northstar Posted October 18, 2005 Share Posted October 18, 2005 Its that time of year again......yeah! *note sarcasm* My mom is looking around to find a flu shot for herself. I was just wondering if anyone here has knowledge about effects/pros/cons of getting a flu shot while on chemo Also, is getting a pneumonia shot beneficial at all? My mom is afraid to move at times, afraid that something might negate the effects of her chemo. Before she made arrangements for her shot I wanted to run this by a few people and get some opinions or stories of experience. Her onc cleared her for a flu shot, didnt mention the pneumonia shot. Thanks in advance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
