H1N1 Vaccination or not
Jul 30, 2009

I have been following the news but haven't seen anything as to whether healthy, but positive folks should get the vaccine. Or should we just follow the recommendations by age group for the general population?

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for your post.

Yes, positives should are recommended to receive the H1N1 influenza vaccination-- since we operate on the assumption that having HIV compromises the immune system.

Should it not be forgotten, the same recommendation applies for vaccination for the regular seasonal flu.

Hope this helps.
