Cimzia and Flu Shot

I recently started Cimzia and am wondering if it is safe to get a flu shot while taking it?
Thanks!

Yes, but be sure to get the shot (dead virus) rather than the inhaled form (live weakened virus) of the vaccine.

Also, you may get a better response to the vaccine if you get the immunization a week or two before your next Cimzia treatment is due rather than right after the treatment.
