Yes - you are encouraged to get vaccinated. The only time you need to ask your prescribing MD is if the vaccine is a LIVE vaccine. Things like the Flu Nasal Mist, MMR, Varicella (chicken pox), Zostervax, etc. are live vaccines. Those of us taking Humira and other Biologics must not have live vaccines as we have the potential to become very ill from the vaccine itself.
