flu shot and addisons

my work (local middle school) highly suggests we all get a flu shot next week. Being newly diagnosised with Addisons, abt 6 weeks, do i get the shot ?
Going to call my endo today but wanted you guys input on the idea. Thank you.

Re: flu shot and addisons

Just got mine last week. I have hypopituitarism (and thus secondary Addison's) and have had one every year since I was diagnosed in 2003.

Re: flu shot and addisons

I get a flu shot every year.
I think it wise for someone with our condition/immune system.
Thanks for the reminder btw!
Take care.
