Shingles Vaccine for Breast Cancer Survivors

I had an episode of shingles after my chemo. I was in isolation for a week. I asked  this question to my oncologist. He said if I had shingles, the vaccine would not help me. BUt I don't think he was sure. From what I am going through, I feel they should give people a shingles vaccine as a precaution before starting the chemo. But I don't think there is enough knowledge among oncologists on this topic.

Honestly if you're immunocompromised I suggest not doing the study. If you are not, I suggest asking your oncologist first.

HLA-B27 positive male and shingles shot

Shingles vaccination while on Humira (or any other biologic drugs-all of which are immuno-suppresive) is NOT recommended by both FDA and the American College of Rheumatologists! It is a live virus which itself may compromise further your immune system and even cause shingles instead of preventing it, while you're on Humira. I will comment later on your eye issue, as I'm at work now. Cheers, Niko

Cervical Cancer is of a concern for all women... but, women who are sexually active and use no condoms and have multiple sex partners are at the highest risk for this disease. Now, if you're not of a promiscuous nature; and, have no intention of living the lifestyle of the someone who would be in the high risk category... then, maybe you could convince your mom that you don't feel that you'll need the vaccine because you intend on being sexually responsible and conscientious in your lifestyle choices. But, ask yourself this... how can a 16 year old young woman; or, anyone for that matter, know what the future holds? The world changes; and so do the people in it... and, maybe this is your mom's thinking. She wants you to be protected... just in case! Also, realize that the vaccine has a very narrow window... in that, if you wait until you're too old to get it, it won't have its intended effect. So, in reality, this vaccine doesn't work on "older women." However, it's a fairly new drug; and, after a period of time... some new drugs have been known to cause more harm than good. And, maybe that's your position... which is quite understandable. Whether or not you could be forced is really a question to ask the nurse or doctor who would administer the injection. Why not make a call to your family doctor or to a local health clinic (it could be anonymously) and ask if a 16 year old has any say in situations like this.
