Mel, I had my shot several weeks ago. I'm considered immunocomprimised but not due to steroids. I had a very sore arm for several days but no problems with getting sick after. In doing a little bit of research, zocdoc.com indicated that it was safe to get the flu shot if you are on steroids but it is NOT recommended to get the flu vaccine spray because it contains live virus. Best bet is to talk to your PCP or pharmacist on that one though.
