Had all 3 Phizer shots. Only the first one put me into a flare. The 2nd two were no reactions.
I have been diagnosed in Nov 2020 so started the therapy less than a year ago. I had AstraZeneca (vaccine and booster). Both time I had a flare and the second was worst than the first. My rheumatologist said that it was expected because I am taking an immune depressant to get the RA under control. I hope this helps you x
My husband and I (we both have RA) took Pfizer, both shots and plan to get the booster. Second shot caused me to have flu like symptoms for about 24 hours, but that's all. My husband did not have any side effects, however he had a mild case of COVID-19 last year.
I to have been hesitant about vaccines. Besides RA I have COPD, Diabetes, neropathy in both feet and a change in meds where the side effects are much like one's from RA but combined together are worse. I don't know what to do 🤔
