Can mycophenolate affect other medicines and treatments?

Can I take vaccinations while I'm on mycophenolate?
If you're on mycophenolate it’s recommended that you avoid live vaccines such as yellow fever or shingles. However, in certain situations a live vaccine may be necessary (for example rubella immunisation in women of childbearing age), in which case your doctor will discuss the possible risks and benefits of the immunisation with you.
Pneumococcal vaccine (which gives protection against the most common cause of pneumonia) and yearly flu vaccines are safe and recommended.
