Can I get vaccines if I’m on an IBD medication?

Most vaccines are safe; however, if you are on any immunosuppressive medications such as steroids, thiopurines, or anti-TNFs, you should avoid live vaccines such as the MMR or Varicella vaccinations. Please consult your GI doctor or Care Team if you\’re not certain about any vaccine you are scheduled to receive.
