Just wondering how many of you with psoriatic arthritis have had the vaccine, and how you reacted afterwards. Thanks.
I’m in my early thirties, on 15mg methotrexate and had the Oxford / AZ vaccine.
I was fine on the Wednesday I had the vaccine, but then woke up at 4am with fever and chills the next morning (Thursday). Felt tired and achy the whole day on Thursday with headaches.
I felt better on the Friday and Saturday after albeit still a bit achy and with minor headaches, but then woke up on Sunday morning with a really bad headache / migraine. Felt totally fine afterwards by the time Monday came around.
Good luck :)
I had my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on 5th February and have had no side effects that I've noticed. I'm just waiting on my letter for a second dose. My wife also had the Pfizer vaccine and has had both shots. She is healthy. She suffered from a sore arm for a couple of days after the first but had no ill effects after the second dose.
I should add that I'm on 3gms of Sulfasalazine a day and 15mgs of Methotrexate once a week. I was told to miss the Methotrexate the week I had the vaccination by my rheumatology nurse.
Hi! I realise this is quite an old thread but I'm new to the site and so I've only just come across it. I have psa and am on Imraldi (previously Humira) and 3g of Sulfasalazine a day. I had my first Pfizer jab back in January and, apart from a sore arm at the injection site, no side effects. I had the second dose at the end of March and felt a little fatigued the following day. But I don't think this was due to the jab as I often have days like that anyway. Hope that helps.
