I have seen this posted in a couple of posts and I wanted to bring it to the forefront so that we could have a discussion. Our children has an autoimmune disease. It doesn't actually mean they have a compromised immune system, as far as I know through my learning and research. As best as I understand it, they have an "over hyper" immune system that not only attack the germs its supposed to but other things that its not supposed to attack (like the pancreas) So, our children, as best as I know, don't have a compromised immune system - like a person who has been through chemo or has cancer. The reason they are in the high risk category is not necessarily because they are any more likely to catch it than others, but that it may wreak more havoc on their system because blood sugars can go wacky, right.
