Hi, is anyone on Orencia biologics and had the covid vaccine? If so do we need to come off it to have the vaccine?
Orencia and the covid vaccine : Hi, is anyone on... - NRAS
Everyone is being advised differently by their rheumys so you should speak to yours to find out what you should do. There have been lots of posts asking this question, if you scroll down you will find them 😊
I wish NRAS would pin a post about this!!
Me too as my GPs don't have a clue. I'm scared to have it and scared not to have it 🙈
Hi helixhelix, I'll speak to the Helpline team and ask them to put a pinned link up to our website where we are putting the latest updates but here it is in the meantime: nras.org.uk/2021/01/20/upda... There's also a great video on our Facebook page where we interviewed Consultant Dr James Galloway on the vaccine too: facebook.com/91098402299/vi... wishes
I take Orencia and was advised by rheumatology it's find to continue with vaccine. I had my vaccine (Pfizer) in mid January, injected as usual on Sunday , C19 vaccination on Wednesday.
Thank you. Did you have any side affects from it?
