Covid Vaccine Update, January 2021:
The studies done to test the Covid Vaccine did not include people who are immune suppressed. The neurologists at the NMDU at Vancouver General Hospital, consulted with other doctors who have immune suppressed patients. The consensus is that patients who are on immune suppressing drugs, such as prednisone, Imuran, and Cellcept can have the vaccine as long as they are asymptomatic. That means no MG symptoms and are being maintained by these drugs or similar ones.
The vaccine is very effective and it is felt that the benefits of having the vaccine far outweigh the possible side effects.
