Steroids & Foreign vaccinations

Hey guys.

Was after some opinions on being mid-course and having to have a yellow fever vaccination?

The doctor reeled off a list of who should NOT recieve the vccination and steroid user was one of them listed. Mainly due to the bodys natural immune system not being that of a "normal" persons.

Due to my departure date being in three weeks, I had to bend the truth slighty and said I was between courses.........

The incubation period for the jab is 10 days........... So I have 9 more to survive.

Has anybody elose benn in this position/or shot the jab whilst on the roid?

Any/all info welcome.

Thanks, Jimmy

    should not present an issue. Some AAS can suppress immune function, but generally immune function is increased.

    i had the same thing when i went to see the nurse for my holiday jabs. She went down the check list before the injections and the "have you taken steroids" question came up. I said no to start with, then gave her the old "ive got a mate who uses them for the gym" reply lol. She could tell i was lying, i was 10weeks into a 12week deca and test E cycle and looked massive lol. All she said was that the injections probably wouldnt be as effective or probably wouldnt work at all while "that person" was on them. lol

    she gave me the injections anyway, bless her!

    dont quote me on this or the nurse as she wasnt 100%, but she did say steroids lowered the immune system making the jabs less effective if that.

    i was going to sharm el shiekh after my jabs, staying in a 5star hotel so there wasnt much change of getting wild polo etc in a place like that.

    Yellow fever tho, different ball game mate. Personally i wouldnt risk it and hold off on the gear.
