I recently participated in a webinar about rheumatoid arthritis. I asked the Rheumatologist hosting the event about how does rituximab affect memory B cells and will my body produce antibodies in the case of a Covid infection. He said Rituximab depleted all B cells and “a Covid infection will render you as being unvaccinated and nullify any protection you had from any prior Covid infection”. To be honest this remark scared the S**t out of me.
Any thoughts or experiences please.
