Anyone getting a pig's kidney is unaware of the consequences. The drugs that keep your body from rejecting such make you a walking germ target. With covid around your chances are not good unless you become a hermit.
That is the case. It is also the case for people who have auto-immune diseases which virulently attack the host.
Also, no one getting a transplant is "unaware of the consequences". A person getting a transplant is made well aware of the inherent risks and the medications they will be taking to reduce the risk of rejection. They will also be told the risks those medications will pose to them during flu/cold seasons, infections, etc.
