Absolutely!  I get mine every year!  Make sure you get the injection, though, and not the "FluMist", which is a live attenuated vaccine.  Since I'm on Tysabri, the pharmacist at the hospital told me not to get the flu shot until at least a week after my infusion.  For those on CRABs (Copaxone.Rebif, Avonex, and Betaseron), or Gilenya, there are no time restrictions.

Be Well,
Lisa

Yes, I have had flu shots with no adverse effects.

I'll note, however, that some people say the nasal mist vaccine may not be the best choice. Get the actual shot.

Definitely get your flu shot!!  A serious illness can result in a relapse.
