Reply To: COVID Vaccine

I received the Moderna vaccine, and it has been about a month since I got the second dose. I didn’t really have much in the way of side effects. A sore arm for a day or two. After the second dose I also had a headache for a day or so. The side effects were tolerable. My neurologist/PCP and I came up with a plan to hold my hizentra for a week to hopeful initiate as strong as an immmune response as possible. I also tried to stay on as low a dose of prednisone as possible. For me the struggles came with holding the meds and my disease vs the actual vaccine. I believe the benefits of the vaccine outweigh taking my chances with covid. I continue to wear a mask and will probably do so for the forseeable future. Although I was nervous about getting the vaccine there was a sense of relief after getting the series. Hope that helps you with your decision.
