Sorry, didn’t realize practitioners don’t participate/respond to this forum. . . .
As I understand it, pneumonia is a major contributing factor to the seriousness of the Covid-19 infection. In severe cases, this then can potentially lead to a “cytokine storm”, where the body’s own immunological response goes into hyper-drive. My understanding is the pneumonia vaccine will prompt an immunological response of its own, and should I subsequently contract the Covid-19 infection, would the vaccine possibly complicate my immune system’s response? Thx!
