It was suggested by several friends who suffer from occasional attacks that I should avail myself of the free shingles vaccinations currently being given by the nurse at my GP's rooms. Because it is a live vaccine I wasn't sure about having it. I have ET, jak2 neg, and am on interferon alpha injections, once per week. Maz or anyone heard advice for or against? Thanks for the info----neither my GP or my haem had heard anything adverse, but one is v young and the other v old so hence the inquiry.
