Flu jab site

Hi all, I have lymphoedema in my left arm,( non surgery arm) from chemo they think, and have had a full clearance on right side, I have read flu vaccine is given in the top of the arm. Has any one had flu jab in leg or elsewhere because I dont want it on either arm. Thank you

I was told by my nurse you can get it in the thigh. Hope this helps.

Hi Dawn

I have replied to your post on this subject on the Lymphoedema board as well. And I agree with Sue in that I think it should be possible to have it in your thigh. I don’t think there’s anything special about arms - they’re just more convenient for whoever is giving you the injection!
