    Yes to vaccinations, no to the drugs.

    As an allied health student we were required to have updated dose of each vaccine before working in a hospital (eg. MMR, tetanus, hep b, flu shot etc).

    When i started work in a hospital they also checked our vaccination records & gave free updates if required

    Hmmm it was kinda occured concurrently?!?! I had EBV when I was 18, developed 'post-viral syndrome', had vaccinations during 4 years of Uni, starting working FT, relapsed 2 years later.

    In year prior to relapse also had gardasil vaccine & seasonal flu shot. Probably recurrent virus/swine flu & prolonged stress caused my relapse (to ~35%)
