H1N1 shot ~ antiviral med

I just filled out a paper to take with me tomorrow when I get my H1N1 shot. 1 of the questions is "Have you taken any antivral medications (Tamiflu or Relenza) in the past 48 hours?"

I take Valtrex, which is an antiviral medication. Should I let them know, or is that totally different than what they're asking?

I would tell them because the shot might not work if the anti virals are working against it
