I was tested yesterday to see if I've mounted a response to the vaccine after being on ritux for several months for lymphoma. I have made no vaccine antibodies whatsoever! So beware those who've used rituximab. I've now had the second Pfizer jab and will have another test in a few weeks.

  • ITP since 2014. Retired nurse. My belief is empower patients to be involved as much as possible in their care. Read, read, read & ALWAYS question medics about the evidence base they use.

When was your last rituxan before you had the 1st vaccine?
