I've been on and off imuran and prednisone for years and guess what?
My OB/GYN tells me I've lost my immunity to measles. So after pregnancy I guess I'll get vaccinated, but I'm scared of vaccines.
Silly, eh? Anyone else lost immunity from previous vaccines?

Yep I did! I was diagnosed when I was 18 years old. I had my first daughter when I was 20 1/2 and right after she was born they gave me a booster. No big deal and I had no problems. Many adults lose their immunity and need boosters, Crohnies or not.
