I have chronic sarcoidosis in the lungs and am permanently breathless if I move around. I take prednisone and mycophenalate. The mycophenalate switches off my immune system. L had a flu and pneumonia vaccines last week , but they also have me down for needing the shingles one. I thought I wasn't allowed live vaccines. The sarcoidosis nurse said because it is not a strong vaccine, I should have it, but I read on the internet, that ' live vaccines such as shingles and yellow fever' should not be administered.
Any of you been advised to have the shingles vaccine?- or had it with any effects.
