COPD and the Vaxx

I am concerned about having copd and then taking the vaxx.
I do the alternate by using a multivitamin, supplements D3, C, Zinc along with my twice a day inhaler and I drink a lot of water. I also have a rescue inhaler and nebulizer that I do not have to use very often, usually when the seasons change. Combined it all helps me to open my lungs, discharge mucus, and breathe better.
However, I still get out of breath when doing strenuous things. I do not wear a mask often because of the smothering that occurs, besides I do not like rebreathing expelled co2. I have never tested positive for covid19. Praise the Lord! I heard the European studies that smokers of menthol cigarettes run a much lower risk of catching covid19 because the menthol stops the ace2 receptors from allowing the covid19 spike protein from invading the lungs.

  1. Thank you


    1. Hi GTaylor, and thanks for sharing your point-of-view and present approach to this with the community. We value your participation.
      Of course the ultimate decision for the vaccine and being vaccinated is entirely up to you. Have you had an opportunity to discuss this with your physician? You may find seeking out his/her opinion may be important to you.
      I also thought you might want to read more about COPD, COVID and the vaccine. We do have some material published, right here on COPD.net, which focuses on this very subject. For your convenience, here is a link to several pertinent articles. I do hope you find them to be helpful in a practical way.
      Wishing you well,
      Leon (site moderator COPD.net)
