I'm not necessarily against vaccines if needed, but I just don't have a good handle on whether they're needed in this case, and I'm not sure I will be able to have a really frank and honest conversation about vaccines with our nephrology team.
Thanks in advance.
The first thing you need to do is read the aluminum section of the book. Aluminum is very toxic to kidney patients. So, I wouldn't do any vaccines with aluminum.
As for being on the immunosuppressives and how that might increase his infection risk, that is an issue. But this is a situation where I really can't advise you on whether to do certain vaccines. You have to read about each disease risk and consider how likely it is to occur and be severe. I would say, however, that if you tend to not vaccinate, you could at least put them off for now - don't be in too much of a hurry.
