I am currently on enbrel and methotrexate for my psoriatic arthritis. I see that flu shots are recommended for those on biologics. My question, are pnuemonia vaccines also recommended? Two years prior to my PA diagnosis I had a bad case of bronchial pnuemonia and now have a mild case of asma.
Yes, Pneumonia vaccination is definitely recommended. Although, the official recommendation about frequency of vaccination (need for repeat) is unclear, for patients on biologics, many rheumatologists vaccinate every 5 years.
