I saw an immunologist (UK NHS) earlier this year, who ran a battery of tests, and their recommendations are: "His bloods today have shown an elevated IgA and IgM level as well as Pneumococcal and Haemophilus influenza antibodies below protective level pre-vaccination. I would therefore be grateful if you could vaccinate him with both Menitorix and Pneumovax to see if he is able to mount a good antibody response." Does this simply mean the tests show I've not been vaccinated, and they think I should be? Or does it mean something else? It sounds like the recommendation is designed to protect me from flu, rather than to in any way treat the MECFS. Also, is anyone aware of any risks with these vaccinations? I'm reluctant to have any because my immune system is out of kilter, and I'd hate to make it worse, but I appreciate that needs to be balanced with the risks of infection. The reading I've done suggests the side-effects are flu-like, but what about MECFS'ers? I'll be seeing my GP and discussing it but would be interested to hear others' views.
