Covid

Covid

I’m wondering how many of you have had the Covid vaccine? I cannot take the flu vaccine so I’m a little hesitant to get this vaccine. I already had Covid in November

I will not take the vaccine

Hi there, I had my first covid vaccination yesterday. I got the pfizer and so far, so good. My arm at the iinjection site was a bit sore this morning, but now nothing - I am very happy! I am hoping that this vaccine will keep us safe. Take care everyone!

I have had both shots of Moderna vaccine without interruption to my 25 mL injections of methotrexate schedule each week.
No side effects.
Gratitude to you if you choose to protect yourself from COVID-19 as well as everyone else surrounding you!

Hi. I’ve had the Pfizer vaccine. I went off of my Methotrexate for ten days before and after each shot. I had a sore arm where the shot was administered and my clavicle was sore as well for about four days or so afterwards, but that was it.

I am on Methotrexate and Humira. I got my first Pfizer shot on March 10, second Pfizer on April ... my most recent dose of weekly Methotrexate was March 6, I will start Methotrexate again on April 17 ... I have been taking Humira without interruption for Pfizer vaccine just hurt a little on my arm. Have them poke you in your non-dominant side.

I was told if you do not stop taking Methotrexate during the vaccination you just do not get the full effect of the vaccine but it is still better than nothing.
