vaccination against influenza
Dear Dr. Dietrich,

what is your advice about vaccinations? To immunize against hepatitis A and B is important for patients with hep C, isn’t it?
What about vaccination against influenza A? It is recommended for people with chronical deseases very often. The influenza vaccines are antigenic components only, no living viruses, similar to the hepatitis A vaccines, therefor I think it should not be any problem to vaccinate in therapy.
Do you recommend a vaccination against influanza? Is it possible to vaccinate during an ongoing therapy with interferon?

Thank you in advance and best regards from Germany, dr rofi
