Hi guys, long time no post. Silly question, but I’m in Canada and we’re a little behind on vaccinations... just rolling out to high risk population of all ages now. I’m not certain if I qualify with IBD alone, and not being on immunosuppressive drugs ( I take Pentasa). Below is the actual verbiage used by the government, in your opinion does crohns/uc fall under this... I mean, it does say genetic disorders of the immune system...which to me is any autoimmune disease, right? It’s just confusing because they have it under the immunosuppression category...and I don’t know if that’s me????
“Immunosuppression: a weakened immune response due to disease or treatment
Examples include anyone undergoing chemotherapy or treatment for HIV, genetic disorders of the immune system.
People receiving long-term medical treatment to control severe inflammation such as rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus.”
