I was told that I could not get a Flu shot if I was taking a cancer drug. Is Hydroxyurea a cancer?

Actually you need to talk to the doctor. It depends upon the dose and the specific disease. There is a new flu vaccine this year for compromised immune systems and elderly people. Your doctor will know if you can take it. This is not an alive virus and is administered in two shots. I was surprised to find I can take it. Walgreens, CVS, etc. do not have this medication. It is only at the doctors. Definitely worth a call to your specialist. I barely survived the flu last time. Good luck with this. If you think of it, please provide feedback from your doctor. Stay well. Karen
