6 mp and covid vaccine


Mon, August 02, 2021 11:28 AM

Has anyone come across literature on how long 6 mp suppresses the immune system?  I was on it for 20 years in remission from Crohns and switched to mesalamine in November of 2019. While I was on 6mp I got every cold that came around.   I don't know whether I still count as "immune-suppresssed" and don't know if the vaccine was effective or not.  So I still restricting my activities - essentially staying home.  It would be helpful to know.  Thanks.
