Hello I started taking Ocrevus last year and I love what has been doing for me so far. I know every medication treats everybody’s body differently. Please talk to your neurologist to find out if this medication would work for you.

How have you been lately?
Now that the flu season is quickly approaching, I think this thread would be particularly relevant to us.
Do you normally get a flu shot or have you been advised not to? If so, do you count on getting vaccinated this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic?

@Courtney_J My neurologist said vaccines are OK as long as they are not live vaccines. I had the synthetic shingles vaccine and will have a flu shot as soon as the pharmacies get more in. Hoping the Covid vaccines will be synthetic.

When I was first diagnosed the physician told me I should not receive a flu vaccine. I started to do research with the MS Society and all the literature was suggesting that I do get the flu vaccine. Since then I have received flu vaccine. I’ve been diagnosed with MS for 21 years. 61 now.

@Rjackson Nice to meet you - I've been diagnosed since 1993 and am now 66 years old. It's been quite the journey.
