Is the Flu Connected to Multiple Sclerosis Relapses?

No, the shot cannot make you sick

If you are wondering about whether getting taking this vaccination could get you sick, Shin says that concept is just a myth. He says, "sometimes people blame vaccinations for making them ill, but remember that the flu shot does not contain any live flu virus, so infection really is impossible. I do recommend that MS patients avoid the nasal spray form of the vaccine, however, because it contains live virus."
