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.

  • Diagnosis of ITP in 2014. Retired (Nov 2019) renal specialist nurse, 46 years on the NHS front line. 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?
