Frequently Asked Questions

When can I get a flu shot / vaccine?


Many of our patients get an annual flu shot. That is fine. The timing of a flu shot or flu vaccine will have no effect on your parathyroid surgery. You can have the shot anytime before or after your parathyroid operation at the Norman Parathyroid Center. It will have no bearing whatsoever on your outcome at surgery, or the effectiveness of the shot. Go for it!
