Reply To: Allergic reaction to IVIG after Covid Vaccine

October 18, 2021 at 2:04 pm

I waited an extra two weeks before my IVIG.  Nevertheless, I had a mild allergic reaction in the form of a rash and wheezing. The nurse (home infusion) stopped for about 20 minutes then recommenced at a slower rate. An extra 1/2 of Benedryl got rid of the rash.  Subsequent infusions used a slower infusion rate – just in case.  They were uneventful. It appears whatever the reaction disappeared with ensuing infusions, although an extra Benedryl is given just in case.  I WILL NOT take a Moderna booster. Any other reaction anecdotes? Anybody?
