This may seem like a silly question, but can my daughter get a flu shot while on prednisone? She's been on steroids since June 07 when she was diagnosed. I thought her neph said no immunizations while on steroids, but her ped said it's just live vaccines she has to avoid. She said the non-live ones are ok and that she actually recommends she get a flu shot since her immune system is a bit compromised.
Last year I remember we specifically did not give her the vaccine. Instead the rest of the family got shots. I was planning on the same thing this year since she's still on pred. But her reg ped seems to think she can get the shot this year.
Any thoughts on this? Anyone else give their kids the flu shot while they're on pred?
