However, the cellular immunity is another important pathway of response to vaccination. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the degree of cellular immunity response to influenza vaccination. Patient with rheumatoid arthritis and healthy controls will participate in this study , will undergo a clinical evaluation the day of vaccination and 4 weeks after. The humoral and cell immunity response will be assessed the day of vaccination and 4 weeks later
