Hello everyone! I was diagnosed with PMR at the beginning of the month and this is now my third week on 15mg Prednisolone. It has worked wonders both physically and mentally. I wonder if anyone could answer these questions though: I am due to have my second OxfordAZ on 2nd May. Obviously my immune system will be somewhat suppressed by the steroids. Will this mean that the jab will offer less protection against Covid? Also, are any vaccine side effects likely to be increased due to a suppressed immune system? I am healthy & active apart from the PMR (which seems to be under control now) and an under-active thyroid for which I take 75mcg levothyroxine.
This forum is a great source of comfort and crucial information. Thank you all.
