I'm going to be in group 1b as well and will get a vaccine (regardless whether it's the Pfizer one or the Moderna one) as soon as they'll let me. Neither is a "live" vaccine. So there's no reason why we wouldn't be allowed to get them. Personally, I'm more concerned about vaccine efficacy than safety.
Thank you. That is helpful. Yes, Iâ€™m more worried about it not working very well (because of Humira) than being unsafe.
When I said I might not be able to get it, I was more thinking that with limited supply, people taking biologics may be at the bottom of the list. If they are not sure it will work well, they will want supplies to go to those they are more sure it will help.
I (thankfully) have no comorbidities. But that puts me at the back of the line, which is weird since my husband will be near the front. That concerns me because Iâ€™ve had an experience where I was very, very sick from a weird virus I could not shake (I missed 3 weeks of work) and I donâ€™t want to experience that again.
Based on what Iâ€™m seeing, unless the Johnson & Johnson vaccine pans out it will likely be mid summer at the earliest I can get it here in the States. We did not order enough doses of the Pfizer vaccine and doses are already promised to other countries.
