Does Anyone Know If You Can Have The COVID Vaccine With Methotrexate When It’s Released?

Does Anyone Know If You Can Have The COVID Vaccine With Methotrexate When It’s Released?

I also am trying to find out. If the vaccines are with a live virus, the answer is no. I know testing has been done with both live and inactive viruses but I do not know what may come to the market eventually.

I’m pretty sure you can. My rheumatologist didn’t tell me Icouldnt. It’s not a live vaccine- that sometimes is a problem. The vaccine is supposed to be beneficial to people like us. But talk to your dr. Always check- maybe we have to stop the week we take it and go back on. Not sure. Sorry!

My specialist says yes as long as it doesn’t contain live antibodies.

I hope so because I need to get it too. I’m new here and I have been reading what everyone says about symptoms. I have been recently diagnosed. I am 77 and probably have had RA for over 20 years, but it never raised its ugly head until this November. Trying to get used to the meds and aches and pains.
