Hey! im not a doctor but i have lupus. Coincidently I got a flu jab today. My doctor told me that the flu jab is not a live vaccine and shouldnt do any harm, (ive had a check up on my lupus too.) But i would check with my doc first if i was you just to make sure, in your case. Hope you're well now, Hazel
