Epilepsy and No Flu Vaccine

My neurologist told me that I should not get a flu shot, since I have epilepsy. Here I am, now, spending Christmas vacation with Influenza A. I'm taking Tamiflu, which is apparently not entirely safe for those with seizure disorders. If the treatment causes an increase in seizure risk, why not just tough it out, skip the Tamiflu, treat the fever, drink fluids, and be over it in a week or so?
