I’m getting chemotherapy treatment with 5-FU and Leucovorin (not Oxaliplatin) and I’m wondering about a flu shot? I know chemo is supposed to suppress the immune system and I’m wondering if that might make it more likely that I’ll get the flu from the shot. Also, I’ve read that this year’s flu shot has caused Autoimmune Diseases such as Guillain-Barré. Have any of you had your flu shot yet and how did it go for you?
