COVID Vaccine and Immunosuppressed Patients....

 I recommend all immunosuppressed patients receive the COVID vaccine unless they have had anaphylaxis in the past. There is no increased risk for immunosuppressed patients. However, there is a risk that immunosuppressed patients may not mount an immune response and produce antibodies. So if you are immunosuppressed, you might consider checking antibodies 14 to 28 days after vaccination to see if you had a good response and if you are making COVID antibodies. I hope this information and advice helps! Dr. A
