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.
Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.
