MAC and getting the COVID vaccine
This is a wonderful team…like a real cooperativa family…we are a band of patients that strategize together…amazing. All good dialogue for “rits”…I also believe the CAT scan would be a good step…it arms the doctor with evidence.
I have another question for the group…what are the feelings on “us” being candidates for the Covid vaccine? Has anyone yet vaccinated? I see my ID doc this afternoon…it is one of my concerns. Any feedback appreciated.

I got my booster (third shot) on Wednesday after they announced on Saturday you could get one if immune deficient. That was over a month ago. Reaction was similar to the second injection and well worth it. It’s a good feeling to have it. Thankful for it’s development and safety.
Had booster mid-August eight months after second shot. Really no issues to speak of. Headache and slightly lethargic for a day. Feel more protected but continue to mask, avoid crowds, and socializing. Praying we all stay safe and healthy.
I had pretty bad reactions – headache, fever, joint pain, fatigue and a huge inflammatory flare after my second dose. Had to be calmed with a course of prednisone. At my doc's direction, got my 3rd dose last Friday, sore arm for a few days, and that's it. These new variants scare the @#$% out of me with bad lungs, so I was ready to roll up my sleeve again.
