Flu shot and Sovaldi conflicting opinions

I don't think anyone knows.  I have one hep doc at the university hospital saying no and another hep doc at Mayo who says for sure you get your flu shot.  I can't find any published info from Gilead.  I sure don't want to goof up treatment and at the same time I sure can't deal with the flu.  I emailed Gilead and so far no response,  Has anyone else asked there doc about this? I am into week 34 of Sovaldi and riba

Try giving Gilead a call. I got my Hep A and Hep B vaccines while on Tx, it wasn't an issue.

I am on
sol/Riba, 24 wks.  I called my Dr when I first saw this question.  He told me not to get the flu shot til tx done.  That, for me, w/b Dwc 1st, so I am going that route.  I, too, hear arguments on both sides.  But I, like you, don't want to mess up my tx.

Just my opinion, for what, it's worth.

Hang in there - tx will go quickly.  Pat
