Vaccines and Multiple Sclerosis.
Hi,
Seeing as I don't feel up to doing to much I thought I might as well sit quietly today and well I have a booster HEP A and B vaccines due, as I had to have this when I went overseas.

Should I have this?  Could this cause or is this linked to new attacks?

My old neurologist wouldn't let me have a flu vaccine as he said something about it being a live vaccine and that it would be like suicide at the time?  It was thought I had MS at that time.

So this brings me to the next question is there any current protocol for MS on what vaccines  people should or shouldn't have.

Cheers,
Udkas.

I just looked some info up about HEP A & B. I'm not sure if it would make a difference or not...but according to what I read...both vaccines are nonactive and can be giving to pregnant and immunocompromised people. So it is not a live form of the virus if that has anything to do with it. So it is different than the flu shot that is live.

Hi,
thanks for the bump, I think now they encourage Msers to have the flu shot but at the time my old neuro said I was in a very active flare, just come out of hospital after a week on IV steriods and he said the flu shot was a definate NO.

I thought somewhere I heard not to have the Hep shots either and seeing as they can associate some vaccines with TM I thought maybe I shouldn't have it.  I will hold off and ask my neuro when I see him but that is a mth away.

Thanks,
Udkas.
