Flu vaccine for PAH Patients. I have PAH. Do I need the flu vaccine?
22/10/2020

Flu vaccine for PAH Patients. I have PAH. Do I need the flu vaccine?

      Yes. All PAH patients should get the flu vaccine.

Will getting the flu vaccine cause me to get the flu?

       It is a common misconception that the flu vaccine is made with the live flu virus and therefore can lead to the flu. The injected vaccine is not made from an active flu virus. It can cause side effects such as pain and swelling at the injection site, a low grade fever and some mild body aches but it does not cause the flu.

I had the flu vaccine last year. Do I really need it again?

      Yes, it is important to get the flu vaccination every year. Every pulmonary hypertension patient should ask their physician about receiving the flu shot every year.

Where do I get the flu vaccine?

     The flu vaccine is available at most primary care physicians and retail pharmacies.
