Flu Shots & Lymphoma

This is why the big medical sites can be just as confusing as the independent ones....

In the question & answer section of WebMD.com, a Hodgkin's stage 3 survivor of 4 years asks the honest question about the need for a flu shot. They are scarce in the US this year and even I have not been able to get one.

Rather than the doctor helping her, he berates US political leadership & just tells her to wash her hands often! So much for the help.

I can't advise you on the need for the shot as you have to ask your medical team - peoples situation & health vary (and I'm not licensed ;^). But if some doctors are like the WebMD guy, watch out. The page in question is here.
