Talked to my GP today and she said that although she will not write me a vaccine exemption letter, she does not think it's a good idea for me to get the covid vaccine. She said that she had five other UC patients who have gone into flares after getting the shot, two of them have been in remission for 10+ years and are now having the worst flares of their lives. This advice echos what my GI doctor told me two months ago.
I think a lot of people who get the shot are a-ok but many aren't, and there's no way to tell who's who, so you roll the dice when you get this shot.
My UC is so precarious and my flares usually so life threatening, that I won't risk it.
