Hello all, I have been a lurker for almost 2 yrs. Dx. Aug. 2013, and have all the problems and side affects some are experiencing. I was at my Primary Dr. this morning and she mentioned to me to ask my Onc. if she suggests that I get the Pneumonia shot, called Prevnar 13. It is not a live virus like the shingles shot, but the pneumonia shot affects the immune system, and she also mentioned if my Onc. says fine go ahead, to make sure that I wait one month after getting the Pneumonia shot before I get the flu shot.
Has anyone had any experience with this Prevnar 13 shot, and if so, what were the affects if any. Appreciate any feedback.
