Anyone taking rituxan .. did you guys take the covid vaccine? Which one? How did it go? Did you have to stop Rituxan? Help /advice greatly appreciated

I am on rituxan and the covid vaccine recommended for rituxan patients is Pfizer. No I didn't have to stop my infusions, each shot is given 21 days apart. I was told to time my vaccine for a month before next infusion. I just got the booster 2 weeks ago so I am good.

Hi, I was just going to ask same question... I'm on ritixun, metotrexate and 7 mags of prednisone when I had my two pfizers and my booster.. After first two my antibodies were all tested... Zero... After booster.... Still zero... Get your antibodies tested.. My doctor said between the combination and especially the rituxun... It would let my body produce any... Currently just trying to be safe w the n95...
