Immunology has reported I have low antibodies to pneumococcus and instructed me to have the pneumovax vaccine, so am booked to do so on Saturday at my surgery. In 4 weeks, immunology will test to see if I've made a response to the vaccine. last time I had the flu vaccine I didn't tolerate it v well (got flu-like symptoms & a flare of one-sided sinusitis + osteomyelitis of the upper jaw bone associated with that sinus). Am ok about having this vaccine on Saturday...I know I need to do this...but am interested how others have coped with it...especially others on mycophenolate cellcept (I'm on 1000mg daily)
