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.
