It’s that time of year again to make enquires about the flu shot.
Your immune system will be weakened by cancer and treatments putting patients at higher risk of serious and even life-threatening problems if they get the flu.
Because viruses are constantly changing, new strains of the flu virus appearing every year so it’s IMPORTANT to consult with your medical team BEFORE being vaccinated. Plan your flu shot during your treatment cycle when your blood cell counts are near normal, not when they are at their lowest.
