My oncologist told me to go ahead and get the shot, but I just felt so sick with all the chemo I decided not to (didn't want the immune reaction). Yeah. Dec 2014 in hospital for a week with Flu A, oxygen, cellulitis, 104 fever and chills, etc.

Get the {***} shot!

Even if it had only made the symptoms less severe it would have been worth it.

I'm so glad you made it through your illness alright. Yes, everyone should get the flu vaccine!!

In addition to the Leukemia and Lymphoma website, cancer.net also offers excellent advice to cancer patients regarding the flu and vaccination-- How to Protect Yourself From the Flu During Cancer Treatment | Cancer.Net

One caveat...get the flu vaccine *injection*. The nasal mist is a LIVE VACCINE and is not appropriate for anyone who is immunocompromised.

I get it every year. I haven't had anything close to the flu for years. A mild cold, nothing more. And I care for highly medically complex/fragile children in their own homes. You'd think I'd get everything under the sun. Nope; the whole household can be under the weather and I'm fine. I consider it my duty to be fully vaccinated so that my kids have additional protection. I do love the parents who blame the home health nurses when their kids get sick, though. Always fun times.

You will only find a preservative in multi-dose vials. Please provide a source that they are neurotoxins.

I assume you mean preservatives. Don't worry, even the vaccines that contain Thimerosal, only contain it in natropathic doses.

I probably would not trust working with or getting care from a nurse that thinks the flu shot can get you sick. If they are that defunct in knowledge to understand basic immunology they probably should not be given any responsibility (IE work as a nurse or anything more than a secretary)

people are so dumb

not in the dosage in the vaccine. I assume you can't read if make such silly statements without actually reading the research.
