Covid vaccination--are there any updated protocols? 8 months 4 weeks ago #73192

I tried to search for what I needed, but all of the posts seem to be more than a year old and I'm wondering if there are any updates in protocol. My daughter has been in remission for 5 years after a very rocky road and treatment with prednisone, ivig, and Rituxin. She would like to pursue a phlebotomy course, but is not eager to have the required covid vaccine. She's already survived covid twice, and is concerned about the vaccine pushing her out of remission. I read about a study that showed (I think) that 12% of ITP patients in the study had a severe exacerbation of their ITP. Is the recommendation to be vaccinated still as firm, even if one might potentially have built some natural immunity?

What does your doctor say, and does he/she know what's in these products?

I'm honestly not sure, but I was looking for current general protocol. :-)  She's been unhappy with her doc and because we live in a rural area there just aren't a lot of choices.

I don't know what the current protocol is - however I have had 5 covid vaccines, the recommended amount and I am now old enough to get a 6th.  I've had ITP for 34 years.    It is too bad your daughter is unhappy with her hematologist - however it might be good to get his/her opinion on the matter.
