Arthritis Care | Flu shots a must for arthritis patients

Flu shots a must for arthritis patients
Marianne Wait writing in Arthritis Today reported on treatment guidelines published by the Infectious
Diseases Society of America in December which remind doctors and patients that people with
a chronic inflammatory disease, even those who take immune-suppressing medications, should
not shy away from getting flu and pneumonia vaccine shots.
People with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lupus, psoriatic arthritis and other autoimmune forms
of arthritis face an elevated risk of infections, including influenza and pneumonia. The increased
risk may be due to the disease, which changes how the immune system functions, as well the
medications used to control the disease, many of which suppress the immune system.
Comment: I always recommend flu vaccination for my arthritis patients.

  1. Are you kidding me? That poison, the flu shot, has made my wife deathly ill, and triggered off R.A.. She is a shell of the woman she was before that shot. Have you investigated the way the flu shot is made? The flu shot is fuckin' DEATH.
