Flu shot likely ok: Buserelin is a medication that is a chemical which alters the secretion of certain hormones from the pituitary gland. Getting a flu shot should be fine. If one is interested in getting a FluMist nasal live-virus flu vaccine, he should ask the doctor prescribing the buserelin whether or not the nasal vaccine would change the absorption of buserelin nasal spray.

What are the negatives, if any, of getting the flu vaccine?

People who have chronic conditions should get it too.
