It's ok to get the shot, matter of fact it helps you to not get a severe case of the flu.

I am currently on the same injections and flu shots are fine as they don't have any live ingredients.

I had my flu shot last year while taking oral methotrexate. I did not stop the med and everything was fine.

My doctor said that I do not need to hold the methotrexate after the flu vaccine, but I have heard that dome doctors do recommend it, so you may want to check with your doctor.
