    mRNA vaccines for Covid and immunosuppression

    Thanks for the links, MLP. They actually explain a lot! I don't know if you remember a couple of years ago, there was a question if S had adenovirus or reactive arthritis. The bloodwork for adenovirus was tested at a public health lab and, with government bureaucracy/size, S never did receive...

    mRNA vaccines for Covid and immunosuppression

    Hi all, Very exciting and positive news on the results of the two vaccines!! YAY!! However, I have a question... are mRNA vaccines considered 'live' vaccines? Can someone on a biologic or any immunosuppressive medication safely receive these vaccines? I brought this up weeks/months ago on...

    mRNA vaccines for Covid-19 and immunosuppression

    Hi, My son has been on remicade for a number of years and, of course, Covid brings concerns re infection, etc. Very positive news on the results of the two vaccines!! However, I have a question, are mRNA vaccines considered 'live' vaccines? Can someone on a biologic or any immunosuppressive...

    A Cautionary Tale

    So glad she is back on track!! But so worrying for you being so far away... and, I'm sure she was badly missing your advice and support! Glad she's doing so much better! A good reminder! I'll be asking my S if he is still taking his vit D. And, at his next GI follow up in October, I'll ask...

    School or college reopening Fall 2020 immunosupressed

    I've been following this thread just out of interest, I guess??, and I have to say I feel for all the parents whose kids are still in school! Such a big added worry on top of everything else we worry about. I just want to pass on hugs and my wishes that no complications from school come to any...

    Sibling being evaluated

    We also reused ours. Rinsed it well every morning and night. I can’t remember if I used any soap?? but i agree w MLP... less infection risk if you can get more supply.

    School or college reopening Fall 2020 immunosupressed

    That is absolutely nuts!!! If all tests are like the one I had, no one can do that to themselves! I can't believe the school expects accurate test results when expecting kids to self test! I think you should tell the school strongly that all tests should be professionally administered...

    Heard from Doc today

    So tough for her to decide and equally tough for you to wait for her decision. There's so much going on in her life and she's fought this for so long, I'm sure she's thinking she's sacrificed enough! :( I'm really hoping she can hang in there till December and still avoid an emergency! Lots...

    Heard from Doc today

    I can only offer you hugs and good wishes as well! I'm so sorry that after all this time and effort, it's come to surgery. :( But, O's lucky to have you supporting her all the way! And, glad she has connected with someone as well. Sending lots of hope and prayers that surgery will run...
