what happens if you take a yellow fever vaccination and you have lupus
This from http://www.cdc.gov/yellowfever/vaccine/
Those who should not receive the Yellow Fever Vaccine...
"Persons with an immunosuppressed condition associated with AIDS or HIV infection, or those whose immune system has been altered by diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma, or by drugs and radiation should not receive the vaccine. People with asymptomatic HIV infection may be vaccinated if exposure to yellow fever cannot be avoided. Persons who have had thymus disease or thymus removal should not be vaccinated.
If you have one of these conditions, your doctor will be able to help you decide whether you should be vaccinated, delay your travel, or obtain a waiver. The physician should help you weigh the risks of exposure and contracting the disease against the risks of immunization, and consider alternative means of protection."
If you have lupus and have had the yellow fever vaccine and start to feel unwell you should see your doctor.
