I just listened to a webinar given by Darrell O’Sullivan presented by the Western Neuropathy Association. He clearly stated that the CDC recommends avoiding the vaccine if you have a history of autoimmune conditions. I asked a question – “Were individuals with autoimmune diseases included in the trials”? He said no.

mRNA vaccines are a new type of vaccine to protect against infectious diseases. To trigger an immune response, many vaccines put a weakened or inactivated germ into our bodies. This is how most Flu shots work which have triggered GBS/CIDP in a small group of people. But not mRNA vaccines. Instead, they teach our cells how to make a protein—or even just a piece of a protein—that triggers a somewhat different immune response. That immune response, which produces antibodies, is what protects us from getting infected if the real virus (Covid-19) enters our bodies.
Not everyone will have an identical immune response, and the vaccine could trigger a reoccurrence of GBS/CIDP in rare instances, requiring treatment. But Covid-19 will kill many of us and I would rather deal with IVIg and Plasma Exchange than find myself on the verge of death!
Here is the latest mRNA vaccine analysis from the CDC:

Just wondering if anyone received or is going to receive the covid vaccine and what their response was? For me I am going to get the vaccine but am a little worried. I did receive the flu vaccine this year and seemed to be ok. I like Jim would rather deal with IVIG and Plasma exchange if needed.

From the CDC website
People who have autoimmune conditions
People with autoimmune conditions may receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. However, they should be aware that no data are currently available on the safety of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines for them.
My question is. “Has anyone with MAG received the vaccination”? Please let me know.
Having been treated with both IVIG and Plasma Exchange with no benefit, I don’t think anyone should be under the false impression that these treatments will provide relief.

And the very next paragraph specfically addresses GBS:
People who have previously had Guillain-Barre syndrome
Persons who have previously had GBS may receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. To date, no cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) have been reported following vaccination among participants in the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials. With few exceptions, the independent Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) general best practice guidelines for immunization do not include a history of GBS as a precaution to vaccination with other vaccines.
