Oncologist told me to get it done within a couple of days of having my bloods done. The practice nurse should fit you in if you explain the circumstances to the receptionists. They did for me. I had no side effects at all xx
My clinic appointments were on Fridays, with my first tablet on the Saturday and the local flu clinics on 3 Saturdays in autumn. I choose whichever flu clinic is on day 1 of my cycle, when my white cells are at their peak.
No, flu jab doesn’t affect neutrophils, or so I was told by my Onco last year. Believed him and had mine done at end of cycle , which was when flu clinic was on. X
Hi I had my flu jab last week towards the end of my cycle. My next cycle has now been delayed as Neutrophils too low. I wonder if this had an impact. Next time I will do it at the beginning!
Hi, your neutrophils are at their lowest at the end of the course. Therefore you are strongest just before you begin your next course. I don’t think you need worry though as the vaccine is a dead vaccine, so you may get a sore arm but you shouldn’t get anything else.
has anyone got any guidance as to when in the Palbociclib (ibrance) cycle you should get a flu jab? I need some ammunition for the GP surgery to potentially to offer the jab to me outside of their usual flu jab days, thanks.
