      Hi Charlie!  I tried, but unfortunately I do not have access to this particular site.  It looks more like a newsletter than a journal.  However, if any of the articles in the reference list are of interest to you, I would be happy to try getting those.

      Best wishes to you and everyone else,

      Ellen

        PS.  I could be totally wrong about this, but it seems from the initial paragraphs that the recommendations against immunization are mostly for patients (1) whose cancer is being treated with organ transplants or stem cell therapies and are on some kind of immunosuppressive therapy or (2) are chronically immunosuppressed (e.g. HIV-infected).  This may be an important distinction.  Again, I could be totally wrong…
