I am new to this site, I have responded on a couple of postings. I was diagnosed in March of this year, I just recently went off the betaseron and started copaxone. I am 42 and live in Virginia Beach, formally from Long Island, NY. My Mom was diagnosed with MS in 1970, she is doing well today at age 78, better then me some days. That is a brief summary of me, I am just wondering has anyone since being diagnosed gotten flu shots?? If so, does it cause any kind of flares afterwards?? Being that I also have manageable case of Asthma, when I get sick, I get sick, I haven't had the flu in several years, I had pneumonia 3 years ago and been good since, knock wood.
