received h1n1 vaccine

As planned, after work I went to Sloan late this afternoon where I received the inactivated H1N1 vaccine. The "inactivated" form is the injection as opposed to the "live" form which is the nasal spray vaccine.

Allogeneic stem cell survivors are not permitted to receive the live vaccine due to our suppressed immune system.

Learn more about the inactivated and live vaccines.

In other news: Happy Thanksgiving!
