Is it safe to have a flu shot if you suspect you may have an auto immune disease? I have not been diagnosed yet, but symptoms seem like that is what I may have. I asked my GP about this, and she said no, that I shouldn't have the shot, but I'm going to Stanford Medical in a couple weeks to hopefully get some answers about my symptoms and I will be in a plane for 5 hours as well as exposed to all those people in the airports where there are lots of germs. I would hate to get sick and then Stanford could refuse to do any procedures or tests on me if I'm sick. I'm coming over from a long way just to see if I can get a diagnosis. We are spending alot of money to make this trip, so want to know if anyone out there has had a flu shot having a possible auto immune disease that they haven't really been dianosed with yet?
