Re: mono+flu shot?
The mist contains a live, but weakened virus, that could possibly give you the flu if you have a very compromised immune system. The shot contains a killed virus, that cannot give you the flu.
I currently have mono (diagnosed 3 weeks ago, still sleeping most of the day...). I asked the doc about it, since I usually get a flu shot because of my asthma and because I am a grad student and spend lots of time on a large college campus. He said that although I was probably a little down on my immune system right now, he thought that the benefits of me getting a shot (and therefore not getting flu with asthma) were greater than whatever risks there are of getting the shot while having mono. But that was his opinion on my personal situation. So I'm waiting another week or so and then getting it. Can't wait too long, though, because they've already confirmed a few cases in my state.
