Covid Vaccine Side Effects

Hello! I am in the process of deciding on whether to get the Covid Vax or not and wanted to reach out to my fellow IBD'rs to see how it went for those of you who have already received the Vax.

  1. I have had 2 shots as prescribed. Happy to say no side effects. I have Crohns and have been in a flare since January. Had a little pain in arm (nothing like we suffers all know). I figured since previous Crohns meds used to give me some side effects like they described for the shots, I could deal with it. Happy I did it. Don't know your current situation, but hope you can seriously consider it. You don't need Covid on top of digestive disease. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    1. I have UC. No side effects here.
