    [flu Shots?]

    In the past I had one medical doctor suggest I get a flu shot, it has not been an issue since, and I think that is the only time I have ever had one, the news just had a report about the flu this year and there being type a and b going around, I am wondering as to if I should go and get this shot, I am in the processes of seeking out a new cardiologist that is more familiar with HCM in the mean time I thought you guys would know what is the best idea about this matter.

    Dear Lisa,

    I get a flu shot every fall. I'm very happy to do so and haven't had any problems or any flu since I started about 5 years ago.

    Unless you react to the vaccine carrier, you shouldn't have any problem. Everyone I know has been sick this year but me --so far. I've had a small cold.
