    Is there any problem with getting a flu shot after joint replacement?

    Thanks!

    Well I wouldn't think so. I didn't even think about it when I got mine last week. Go for it!

    I remember being told to ask the doc/nurse before they put the needle in.

    I wouldn't think so either, flu's a virus, it's bacteria we should be worried about.
