Anyone on immunotherapy (cimzia) had there 3rd vaccine not booster and what did you have
3rd vaccine on immunetherapy : Anyone on immunotherapy... - NRAS
On Enbrel (also and anti-tnf) and had a third dose six weeks ago. Where I am they make no distinction between third primary and booster as it is exactly the same dose of the same thing. Anyway, those eligible are all now 6 months past our second dose.
Maybe in other places it is different. Or perhaps if you only had the second dose recently.
Here we had a choice of Pfizer or Moderna.
My daughter (as she is 15) only had her second dose mid-October. Rheumatologist has confirmed she is eligible for a third dose as she is on adalimumab which is due mid-December. So not everyone eligible for a third dose is past six months yet.
I had my 3rd dose yesterday, it’s just the same as the booster there’s even booster written on the card, AZ first two then Pfizer for 3rd
I've had exactly the same. First 2 AZ then Pfizer for booster . Also written as such on my records . Days later I had a letter from my rheumatologist ( copy of letter sent to my GP ) saying that I was entitled to a third jab . I'm hoping in 6 months time I will be able to present for my 4th jab . But who knows where we'll be then . Especially with the recent threat of a rampant S African variety .
Concultant said that’s the stock they’ve got at the minute
Im on Cimzia - had what's being called a booster. I got texts from NHS and GP saying I was eligible for a booster not 3rd jab. I had Pfizer - no other options available.
Sorry to slightly hijack your thread. I have received a letter to say I am entitled to a third dose but must contact my clinical team to decide the best time for me to have it. Is this the case for everyone?
The comments regarding them being the same is incorrect. The JCVI guidelines stipulate a full dose of Pfizer for either 3rd dose or booster. However if you are offered Moderna it is a full dose for the 3Rd dose and half dose for the booster. Many people are receiving boosters before receiving letters about the 3rd dose. In these cases you need to ask gp to amend your record so you are offered a booster in 6 months along with other immunosuppressed patients. Too many people wrongly think the 3rd dose is a booster when it’s not. Mine is recorded as a /nd 2nd dose showing my primary course consisted of 3 vaccines, as opposed to the 2 that healthy individuals get
so you are saying the 3rd vaccine, and booster are different for Moderna, not Phizer, ? so the booster then, if Pfizer would be same as 3rd vaccine(Phizer), but if you are having Moderna, or one of the other vaccines, there is a difference between the 3 rd shot and booster?
Yes only Pfizer and Moderna are recommended for the 3rd dose, although you can have another if availability is an issue or you have an allergy to Pfizer or Moderna. It is stated in both the GPS green book, which is their bible on immunisation, and also the JCVI statement that Moderna should be full dose for 3rd jab but 1/2 dose for booster. The reason for that is those needing a booster would have already mounted a good response to the 2 primary doses they had. Whereas the reason for 3rd dose in immunosuppressed is that they were unlikely to mount the same response as those not on immunosuppressants, and therefore a full dose is required.
Here’s the JCVI if your interested
On Cimzia also and I was offered a third dose not a booster. Recieved over a month ago and wasn't offered a choice, just Pfizer. My letter came from hospital though and not GP but I'm based in Northern Ireland.
