Flu jab

Should I have the flu (influenza) jab, and is it safe?

Vaccination against seasonal flu offers Waldenstrom's macroglobulinaemia (WM) patients, who often have weakened immune systems, some protection against the most common strains of flu. The flu vaccine is therefore recommended in all and preferably also family members of WM patients to keep the flu levels low in the community.
