Is it safe to get a flu shot if you're taking Prednisone?

I think it is important to get a flu shot whilst taking prednisone because it lowers your body's immunity to infection, hence if you were to get flu you would be more likely to get infections such as pneumonia. It also depends why you are taking the drug, if it is for something such as asthma then it is vital to have the jab. Again as a previous answerer said do ask your doctor, but most people with chronic conditions are recommended to have the shot.
