Yes: Inactivated or subunit vaccines are not contraindicated in people on this type of medicine. The live attenuated FluMist vaccine should not be given.

Influenza Vaccine: Agree with Dr. Lutwick. You can receive the inactivated influenza virus vaccine. But per Drugs.Com, you could have a reduced response to the vaccine if on adalimumab.
