The Covid Vaccine and IVIG?
It makes sense that the enhanced antibodies from IVIG immunoglobulin therapy (which I’m currently on), could affect the body’s response to the Covid vaccine. Do I have any expert or anecdotal evidence? I do not. People are talking about it, but I’ve not read any hard evidence, perhaps because this pandemic and vaccine response is history in the making. We’ve never been through anything like this in my lifetime. Except perhaps the distribution of the Salk polio vaccine, given to us in sugar cubes.
Bottom line for me, I needed the vaccine as soon as it was available to me, wherever I was in my 4 week IVIG cycle. As it turns out, I got it midway. Was this good or bad? Again, no clue, but I had no flexibility to feel I could pick and choose dates to get the vaccine. I feel extremely lucky that I got called to receive my first one.
If you have thoughts about this, I’d enjoy hearing them.
