Id day biochem. It's hard as hell so a lot of people dont study it. You can always take a bio class, in fact it might be part of the program

Biochemistry is for old people. I majored in Biochemistry and I would consider myself to have a degree in Molecular Biology. At the college I went to there were very few intense biochemistry classes (to major in it all we had to take was one year of biochemistry!!). I would assume that your college will dictate to a large degree what you do, but definately take a bunch of MoBio classes if you go biochemistry, because I think it is very useful!

For an immunologist, Biochem is better. Along with a lot of Chemistry, especially Analytical Chemistry.
