I took my flu shot around week 8 or 9 I think. I was still on Incivek at that time, and it really made me feel bad. It was the worst I have felt while on treatment and I guess I was sick for around 4 days. I didn't have to go to the doctor or anything, but I did feel really bad. I don't know if it was just the treatment or the flu shot, but it was a rough couple of days. I hope your friend feels better soon.

Hopefully your friend will start feeling better and this flu shot will be long forgotten.  I don't know anything about getting a flu shot while on tx so this will only serve as a bump up.

Never had a reaction to the flu shot and took it twice while on tx for 72 (but I was not on Incivek or Vic) all I know is I felt badly enough that i certainly wouldn't want to have gotten the flu on treatment.  However being on antivirals already it might not even matter (still it is advised that since we have a chronic long term disease we do always get the flu shot).

Getting mine Friday.
