when should i get the flu shot?

Aug 28, 2011

Im seeing ads now (last week of August) that flu shots are available... Is it too early to get the shot? How long does it protect you? When do you recommend someone with HIV to get it? Should I wait until October or November or get it right when its available. Last week My CD4 is 448, VL 57 (been on Atripla for 8 wks, my VL came down from 96,000).... I live in NYC where we have brutal winters. Thanks for your time!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I would get it now and not wait.

difference CD4
why hasn't my CD4 gone up after 9 years on meds?
