The vaccination might display autoimmune side effects and potentially even trigger a full-blown autoimmune disease. This susceptibility to vaccine-induced autoimmunity is probably determined also by genetic predisposition, which further emphasizes the importance of “the mosaic of autoimmunity” . The vaccination decreases the morbidity and mortality of the individuals, especially children. Nevertheless, the dilemma of whom and when to vaccinate remains unresolved and further research is needed to explain the action mechanism.
Finally, we believe that our commitment should be to plan genetic investigations on the post-vaccination autoimmune-affected patients in order to clarify the pathogenic background and the physiopathology of vaccine-related autoimmune response. Hopefully, this approach might lead to outline a screen-test (patch test?) for this risk and, eventually, to prevention of adverse reactions by vaccination. It could represent a “personalized medicine” that could potentially improve preventive methods and therapeutic options, accordingly with the recommendations of the “European Association for Predictive, Preventive and Personalised Medicine” .
Just because you doubt doesn't mean you've proven anything. Doubt is not proof.
If you join any major IBD support group, you will find people who have a history of auto-immune reactivation when accepting vaccines. It's an established fact in their medical records, so much so that their doctors recommend against future immunizations. I am one of those people.
I'm not anti-vax. Get one if you want. I won't touch the stuff because I will do anything and everything to avoid flaring.
Proctosigmoiditis dx 2015 with 1 major life threatening flare per year since
Waxes and wanes on yearly cycle -- remission vs. deadly flare
Sept 2019 remission ended with major flare, dx upgraded to pancolitis
Failed all meds except prednisone; prev tried Entyvio, Remicade, Humira
