Hello, As you are on.medications please continue them and complete the course of it. And then wait for sometime and then you may take the vaccine. It has three doses has to be taken in the gap span of 6 months each. And this won't be lasting for rest of your life once you develop immunity you will never suffer from it once again but of your immune levels are compromised then there is a chance of reoccurring. Thank you
