Probably: But some cases of gbs have been associated with reactions to vaccines and would approach this cautiously and discuss with the neurologist who originally dealt with the illness.

Yes you can: If guillain barre was not related to previous vaccines and you are not in the acute state of the syndrome, it is safe to get the vaccine but discuss your concern with your doctor.
