Flu Vaccines and Tysabri

Flu Vaccines and Tysabri

The flu season is upon us and you may have questions regarding flu vaccines.

Patients receiving Tysabri should NOT receive any type of live, attenuated flu vaccine (nasal   spray).

There are two forms of the Seasonal Flu vaccine available this year:

1.) The nasal spray is a live, attenuated (weakened) vaccine and is NOT safe for patients on Tysabri. 

2) The Intramuscular injection or flu shot is an inactivated (killed) vaccine and is safe for patients on Tysabri. 

Flu shots are available at many primary care clinics and pharmacies.   

If you have questions, please call us at 612-879-1000.
