Coronavirus vaccine and Tocilizumab.

Good Evening,

I was just wondering if anybody out there could confirm whether it is OK to have the vaccine, whilst being treated for RA with Tocilizumab?

Also, I had a reaction to Tocilizumab and Humira in the past. Are the Coronavirus vaccines safe for me to have?

Thank you.
