    I had a significant bout of Covid and am still dealing with the repercussions in November 2020. I did not have Rituxin for 10 months. Got the Phizer vaccine. I did not develop any antibodies to the actual vaccine or to the virus. Im fairly disappointed. Stupid

    I just came here to share the good news. I got my third Covid shot (Pfizer) and I'm perfectly fine. I was hoping everybody else was going to say the same, but, we're all different. I was nervous at first, thinking that this could be the potential trigger of a flare to happen but because 2 of my doctors advised me to get the shot, I didn't hesitate. Only the first one was discomfort for the first 24 hours. The second one was like getting the flu shot. The third one, I was so busy talking to the lady about side effects I didn't even feel the needle go in. All good news. I had to leave them with a funny joke of the day, however! I said, "If you don't give me the Pfizer like I'm requesting, I want to speak to your SuperPfizer!" LOL Hope everybody is doing well.

    Hello all,

    after two shots of AZ in March and July, I asked my rheumy about a booster shot, and he heartily agreed that it was for the best - with one stipulation. I’m on 2000mg Mycophenolate daily, which has a bioavailability half life of about seventeen hours. His suggestion was that I halt the mycophenolate for one week, starting a day before the booster shot, in order for some antibody development.

    I had the Pfizer booster a week ago, and start back on mycophenolate tomorrow. The only side effect of the booster was a very sore arm for a day or so, and I haven’t noticed any side effects of halting the immunosuppressants for a week.

    I know that every individual case is different, but if you are questioning the booster or the main COVID shots, perhaps discuss halting your IS course for a short amount of time when you get the vaccines. Obviously, please DO NOT go off your drug courses without talking to,your specialist first, I only presented this as a possible alternative in some cases.
    Life lessons for all of us;

    Never eat at a place called Mas.
    Never shoot pool with a guy called Pop.
    Never try to eat anything bigger than your head.

    I may be an outlier here, but figured I'd share my good news. I am on maintenance 20 mg of Methotrexate only, not Rituxan. I had first 2 Pfizer shots in Jan/Feb, and got a Moderna booster in August. For all shots, I skipped 2 weeks of dosages after the shot. In October, I had an antibody test that showed strong antibodies (+20).
