Adalumimab and Covid vaccines
I have RA, it's managed using adalumimab (Humira), I have had both my covid vaccinations (Astra Zeneca). I didn't have an reaction at all to either shot. I have since had an antibody test that was negative for Covid antibodies. My GP has said that "infection antibodies are not the same as vaccine antibodies" and I shouldn't be concerned.
I don't think my GP is correct in saying that the antibodies are different - but it may be that the test doesn't pick up "lower" levels of antibodies.
Is my GP mistaken about two different antibodies?
Should I be concerned about the negative antibody test?
How can I check whether or not I am protected?
Do I need another (different) vaccine?
