Pneumonia Vaccine

Pneumonia Vaccine

I got diagnosed in November 2017.Before treatment my CD count was 1000. Do I need to get vaccinated against pnemonia or just wait until my CD count increases a little? My doctors say pneumonia vaccination is not urgent for me. I think vaccination will drop my CD count.

Are You Ready For The Flu Season?

Are You Ready For The Flu Season?

I just read a story (https://www.newscientist.com/article/2242113-au...) that the flu season in Australia, Chile, and South Africa was mildly low this year (Their flu season is May - August). More of this has to do with the Covid19 lockdowns and mask wearing.
Do you see the United States having the same results with the flu season, or do you think it will be worse? How will you prepair to fight Covid19 & the flu together?

How Do You Try To Prevent Yourself From Getting Somebody Else's Sickness?

How Do You Try To Prevent Yourself From Getting Somebody Else's Sickness?

You are in public or at work. Maybe even at home. You see those people, hacking, coughing, blowing their nosees. The horror to all this is they don't cover their mouth or nose. Or they touch everything with those hands if they do, spreading their germs everywhere.
How do you protect yourselves from getting those germs, to make you sick?

Good to see the lotion too. Hand sanitizing dries out the skin for sure.

Should I Take The C19 Injection?

Should I Take The C19 Injection?

HIV positive since 1988, diabetic, and allergic to 2 injectables (Vitoza & Levimir), but can take Lantus. I have had a vascular ablation and stent put in, as well as 5 injections in each knee, a tailbone epidural and 2 neck injections. I take 21 meds and my T-cell count is always in the low 30's. My NP says it would be okay to take the injection for C19, but I would like a second opinion. I am nervous about taking the C19 vaccine. Can you or anyone help?

Re: Masking For Immune Compromised Vaccinated Individuals:

Re: Masking For Immune Compromised Vaccinated Individuals:

Yesterday the CDC suggested all individuals unvaccinated or not wear masks indoors, especially in lower vaccinated states. I saw my Hematologist yesterday and he said he is advising immune compromised people like ourselves and his Cancer patients to mask up just like pre vaccination days. He suggested wearing a N-95 mask which offers the best protection. They are available on Amazon now, but there may be a run on them depending on what happens with the increasing cases and variations of the… read more

Any Changes In Your CD 4s, Viral Load, Or Panels Since You Received Your Vaccination?

Any Changes In Your CD 4s, Viral Load, Or Panels Since You Received Your Vaccination?

I had my vaccination in February, Pfizer two shot series. I have had CBC and Renal panels done since, some elevated values in kidney function. I have not had labs for my CD 4s and viral load since I have had the vaccine. Wondered if other members have seen any significant changes with your CD 4s, viral load, and CBC and Renal panels since receiving vaccination?

Any One Had One Of The Vaccines For Covid?

Any One Had One Of The Vaccines For Covid?

Finally got an appointment for this Wednesday first dose. Wondered if anyone has gotten both shots and if you experienced any side effects, especially with having HIV?

Sometimes I wonder how they can get two vaccines out for Covid within months, and we are still waiting for one for HIV after 41 years+? Grateful for the Covid vaccine, but haven't you ever wondered why it has taken so long to make an HIV vaccine? Comments!

Everyone stay strong and well!

Can The Covid 19 Vaccines Spread Immunity Through Intamacy?

I live in the Deep South. A friend explained that he did not need to get the Covid 19 vaccines because his partner got all 5 and they are intimate without using protection. Is it possible to spread immunity sexually?
