Just diagnosed with cll. I'm 55, female. In Jan. blood tests showed WBC 14. Showed the same in July 2015 so was sent to hematologist. Feel great. No other symptoms. Confirmed by flow cytometry that I have cll. White blood count is 14.4. Lymphocyte 7.5, CD38 negative. Hematoligist said it was smoldering cll. He said I should get the pneumonia vaccine. I asked him about the shingles vaccine if it was safe and he said it was safe at the levels that I have. Only info I can find is DONT get shingles vaccine if you have CLL. Can't get into see hematologist for three months to ask him more questions on the shingles vacinne. Does anyone have any info for me?
