I warned everyone about this!!! John Hopkins showed 17% efficacy after 1 shot and 8% for people on metabolite meds like Cellcept. We need theraputics for transplant recipients!!! The CDC is being remiss in not issuing guidance that addresses this sad situation . They should let immunicompromised people know that we are not protected and not to have a FALSE SENSE OF PROTECTION which could lead us to dropping our guard. and getting infected. Mayo Clinic should issue warnings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been hearing about a medication called Remiron that is being considered for immunosuppressed people that haven't had an immune response to the Covid vaccine. I haven't asked my transplant team about their thoughts on this treatment so haven't got my hopes up yet, but it does sound promising. I'll ask at my virtual clinic appointment next week.

From my layman's perspective, it sounds like you are injected with the antibodies that your immune system is too suppressed to make in response to the vaccine like the rest of the population who are not immunosuppressed react by making themselves.
