... a flu shot?
15 Oct 2009
you can not have any preventive shot live flu or H1N1 or anything that is "live". what live means is that they are injecting you with a weak strain of a virus. metimazole is normally given when you have an autoimmune disease, that means your immune system is very weak and a flu shot could possibly kill you.

Yes and no. The flu shot itself contains dead/inactivated viruses, making it perfectly safe for someone with a weakened immune system. The nasal flu spray is what you'd want to stay away from, as it does contain weakened live viruses. I myself am using Methimazole 40mg daily. I had to do a lot of research about the flu vaccine and its possible interactions with the medication, since I am actually required to take it. So, I would say feel free to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the flu by taking the shot.
