Would like to know, how many Crohn’s patient get the flu shot?
Hi, I was wondering how other Crohnies feel about the flu shot. I was diagnosed in 1991 with Crohn’s/colitis. Have had many surgeries including a total colectomy in 2004. Up until I moved from CT to SC my new Dr. pushes the flu shot. My other Dr. never told me too and seemed to discourage getting it. I’ve never had the flu and have been on every medicine out there that suppresses your immune system. I am now on Stelara for a year and doing well. Concerned about getting it due to the fact they don’t always work and having some side affect from the vaccine. I would like to know how many Crohn’s patients actually get it.
