They are safe: When patients are on immunosuppressive we strongly recommend that you stay caught up on vaccines. Both vaccines you are speaking about are non live vaccines and are safe to take while you are on Entocort and Azathioprine. Both vaccines require some time to become fully protective so get them sooner then later Good luck.
