Hi. I'm 76, just diagnosed last Dec and on mycophenolate. I have already received my 3rd (booster) covid shot, and had a mild reaction for 1 day. I had zero reaction to the first and second moderna jabs, so not sure why a reaction to the 3rd, but I think it's better to vaccinate even if it helps only moderately. I say this after 30 years in Communicable Disease Prevention and Control.

Hi Lois, I hear pros and cons on the jabs for those with immune issues and the 3rd dose is so questionable. I've done none and I'm good...No immune issues, I work to keep my immune system strong with my choices.... Hope all will be ok for you.

FYI, Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disease, meaning the bodyís immune system mistakenly attacks its own parts.

The issue is not about keeping "the immune system strong"

It's what I had to offer Lara, as I don't do the jabs which people are told will improve their immune systems, I improve my own and refuse the jabs. Thanks.

Caroline- it's important to better understand health conditions you do not have personally before making generalized comments about them. It can be very confusing for people seeking help, when the comment does not correctly address what they are dealing with, and can actually be contrary to what would normally be medically advised for them.

As Lara tried to explain to you, in autoimmune illness, people don't want to make their immune system "strong" - in fact the usual treatments involve suppressing the immune system in order to prevent the body from attacking itself.
