I wonder if people who had cancer earlier this year can get the flu shot. It seems like every place is running out. Has anyone out there been successful?

Hi pickles~
The flu shot is recommended for cancer patients too. They don't post it on the requirements and i'm not sure why. But i would talk to your doctor about it, i'm sure there is something he can do for you. My physician isn't giving them out until late november/early december, but he always makes sure i get mine. Your immune system is week so usually your doctors will want you to get one. But i would ask your doctor about it, i'm sure he could tell you if you need it and if so where to get it. Hope this helped!

Pickles, If you were not able to get the flu shot you should really check out Immunocal. It is an over the counter immune system enhancer. It is listed in the "Physicians Desk Reference" and the "Red Book". I have been taking it for weeks and have noticed quite a change in my energy levels and health. Many cancer patients have recommended this to me. You can find it at www.Healthy-Immune-System.com
