I just read on another board that the initial swine flu vaccine in nasal dose is a "live virus". The shot, when it is available, will not be a live virus. This statement was made by a RN. My question is, do those of us that are on chemo have to avoid individuals that have received this? I remembered from years past a neighbor that was going through chemo had asked us to keep our children away from her if they had gotten any immunizations. I asked my oncologist if I needed to avoid children for this reason and she said "yes" if their immunization was a live virus. I will ask my oncologist this question on Thursday, but in the meantime wondered if anyone here knows the ansower.
