I agree. My doctors’ best guess is my GBS was caused by taking the Humira drug, and several months later I had a significant “flare” after having a routine tetanus shot. I also had a bad relapse/ flare about a year later, and unfortunately I have been left permanently disabled by my residual symptoms. My doctors view my autoimmune system as “hot wired” and therefore will not clear me for the Covid vaccine, or any other vaccine at least at this point. I would very much like to have the vaccine so am hoping to re-visit this in a few months when we have more data. I am concerned though that not unlike the flu vaccine, the vaccine manufactures could exclude GBS people from receiving it.
