Vaccine Safe for Flakers?
God forbid we should have to be inoculated for smallpox.
I read somewhere that people with weak immune systems and people
with eczema should stay clear of the vaccine.
My question to you is what about us flakers? Would it be dangerous
for us to take the vaccine due to our skin cells reproducing at such a
fast rate? -Carol F.
Response: The latest
information about the smallpox vaccine and P is being provided by the
National Psoriasis Foundation at their website:
I write this (January, 2003) the most current information is available
right on the home page (not requiring membership to read).
according to this NPF report, the CDC is recommending flakers with active
lesions defer taking the vaccine, at least until current assessments being
carried out by the military further define the safety of the vaccine.
