What Does Everyone Think About The Covid Vaccine? Do Those If Us With Auto Immune Get It?

What Does Everyone Think About The Covid Vaccine? Do Those If Us With Auto Immune Get It?

I keep hearing different opinions. One says no because the suppressed immune system won't respond the correct way, but others say yes we need the protection even if it's not as good a response.

My rheumatologist also suggested I get the Vaccination. I have received the 1st one. 2-3 days after my arm was sore, like with the flu shot. Then 1 week after the vaccination a rash began forming where the injection was given. Bumpy rash approximately 2" in diameter, red, hot to the touch, swollen and itchy. 5 days later and the rash is now approximately 5" in diameter, covering most of my upper arm. It is still itchy, hot to the touch, slightly painful to the touch, and a little swollen. Benadryl was recommended by my rheumatologist as well as Tylenol for the pain. I hope to contact my primary tomorrow about the rash as this seems strange. Online articles state this is just a minor allergic reaction, completely normal.
Best of Luck to all regarding the vaccination.

I wish I had the answer. This seems to be a question that many of us are pondering... My Rheumatologist told me that I should get it when it’s available and that it is fine for me to do so even with present diagnosis and being on a Biologic. She has been very good with my treatment and quite knowledgeable so why do I still remain unsure?
For now I’m just thankful that I remain safe and I try to be careful and pray for peace and wisdom. Hopefully I’ll know what to do when they make it available...

No... I'm on Sulfasalazine right now, but it isn't getting rid of the inflammation in my hands... I have a follow-up appointment on March 11 at 8 am, and they were saying they may try a biologic then... I had to do 3 months of the Sulfasalazine first... I get my second covid vaccine that afternoon...
