Is there any evidence whether vaccinations such as the seasonal flu vaccine are a good idea for CLL patients? It just seems to me that stimulating your immune system might not be such a great idea, so the risks of the vaccine might be higher. And the chance of the vaccine actually working and offering protection seem lower. The current recommendations seem to be based on the idea that vaccines are essentially benign, but I'm not convinced that they are, even in apparently healthy people.
