Influenza vaccine

It always seems that flu season is just around the corner and there is lots of discussion as to who should get the vaccine and who shouldn't. Those who have a pulmonary exacerbation are often asked to wait to receive their vaccine until they are over their acute exacerbation.

Otherwise, we generally recommend that all CF patients and their family members receive the influenza vaccine on a yearly basis. This is meant to protect not only yourself, but your loved ones as well.
