Hi!
Well, you may need to stop Humira for about 6 months before you can take any live vaccine like typhoid or yellow fever. Also, post vaccination, you may not be able to start Humira before 2-4 weeks. However, please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
