Crohn's and Colitis Canada has recommended that people who have IBD on medications that suppress the immune system be included with other immunocompromised people getting the 3rd booster shot in the fight against COVID 19. See here:
As does the Crohns Colitis Foundation:
And Crohns and Colitis UK:
Please contact your local governments to push adding immunosuppressed IBD patients to their 3rd dose lists. With the Delta variant becoming more and more prevalent, and with the millions of people NOT vaccinated (for whatever reason) the risk of catching COVID is still there.

Today was my first injection of Hadlima, the biosimilar to Humira.
The injection pen was easy but it hurt more than the Humira. Only lasted a few seconds, but it definitely let me know it was there that's for sure. It's only been an hour and so far so good. Not that I'm expecting anything to go wrong.
I'm still not happy with the government forced-switching from a biologic to a biosimilar, but I have no choice and have to make the best of it.
Let's see where this goes shall we.
