My CIDP was caused by the H1N1 flu vaccine so I was very hesitant to get the Covid vaccine for fear it would reactivate my CIDP. But I was more afraid of getting Covid and dying in the hospital so I went through with the vaccine. I guess I was lucky, I didn’t have any problem. I got the pfizer vaccine. My neurologist said that the way the H1N1 vaccine and Pfizer vaccine interact with your immune system was completely different so that he said I SHOULD be ok getting the Covid vaccine. But no guarantee that it won’t cause a problem. I still don’t know if I will get the 3rd booster if offered or not. Why play with fire. I was good for the first two but who knows if the 3rd one will be my downfall.
