Lemtrada and COVID-19

Do my past infusions with Lemtrada (2015) have any impact on my response to COVID-19?

You should ask that question to your medical team as they would probably know best, sashaming1 Please let us know what they told you when they respond because I don't know the answer, and I would like to know as well. Keep Smiling :-D

I asked the question and we'll see how long it takes to get a response. I'll let you know the response.

I am not on the DMT Lemtrada, I am on Ocrevus, and my neuro, at my last visit, did not mention any concern to receiving it. I was told to self isolate myself, which I always do, and to let them know of any complications. I have not seen anything out of the ordinary, and if they had any concerns, her office would immediately let me know. Keep Smiling and Be Well, sashaming1 :-D

The response is to not worry about it because my immune system has recovered back to normal after the Lemtrada.

That's great that you received a positive response, sashaming1 :-D

Have a look on this website - answers to many questions from PwMS about COVID-19 are being posted and regularly updated as knowledge increases.

It's a reputable site led by one of the best MS specialists in the world, not a site full of uninformed opinions being expressed by people who don't know what they are talking about.

At the very least, you have a weakened immune system. Self-isolate as much as you can. We have a lowered resistance to viruses and bacteria. (I am on Ocrevus, it's the same.)
