@gzt @noelle I'm still waiting on J&J to do tests on immune compromised people that was scheduled for Q3. The moderna one done on people on immune suppressant drugs for organ transplants suggested that it may not function well.
This is often what people mean by "untested".
Straight from the CDC
"People should be counseled about the unknown vaccine safety profile and effectiveness in immunocompromised populations, the potential for reduced immune responses, and the need to continue to follow current guidance to protect themselves against COVID-19." https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/covid-19-vaccines-us.html
I am worried it will trigger an immune system cascade because of the spike protein's impact on kidney associated smooth muscle tissue and put me in a wheel chair just like the covid-19 virus itself.
I tell people how important is is for those with healthy response to the vaccine to get it because it protects so many on immune suppressant drugs. About 4% of the population is immune suppressed in America.
These are people how may be unknowingly not able to develop immune response to covid and could be putting themselves at risk until they confirm it worked.
There's a good review of this here https://www.advisory.com/daily-briefing/2021/04/20/immunocompromised
This space is really scary for anyone who's in this situation because of how so much of this stuff was left untested.
I stay really well isolated because the last thing I want to do is become a host for it and become a mutation reservoir. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020/12/uk-variant-puts-spotlight-immunocompromised-patients-role-covid-19-pandemic
Spending every free moment exploring how the gut microbiome might improve chances of safely turning on my immune system.
I'm litterally contemplating eating medically validated dog shit because of some findings that mTOR might give me the ability to be confident in the vaccine working. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3616892/
Might make my own vaccine if this thing has a rebound during winter as vitamin D wanes.
