Is their caution based on your transplant history, @contentandwell?

@hopeful33250 yes, their caution has to do with immunosuppressants I believe. Interestingly Mayo does allow it, but when I had my post-transplant appointment last month and asked why they were not advising it the NP gave me a very understandable reason, I just can’t remember what it was! MGH is very cautious.

I think I sent my husband enough articles about the flu shot not causing flu that he had to give in.

@alamogal635 the only negative I had from the shot was a sore arm for a couple of days. Oddly, it seems much easier to find the high dose flu shot at pharmacies than at doctor’s offices! I always get mine at Walgreens.
