Default "compromised immune system"

'Splain please. I understand if somebody is ill or having chemo, but what about autoimmune disorders such as MS or RA? If a person has one of those are they considered to have a compomised immune system - or is that a whole different thing?

My husband has MS. The disorder itself doesn't compromise his immune system, but the injections he gives himself do suppress his immune system, so he has to have all the vaccines.

And RA also does not suppress the immune system, but I believe some of the drugs used to treat it do, so I guess the long way around is people who have those conditions and treat them with regular medication do have suppressed immune systems.
