Covid-19 Vaccine while taking Biologics.
With the roll out of COVID-19 vaccines, we would like to offer some guidance about how to modify your dose if you may be taking a biologic for psoriasis. Biologics can impair the ability to mount a response to a vaccine. To allow for maximal efficacy of the vaccine, while minimizing the risk of flaring your psoriasis, consider the following. Wait until you are due for your next biologic dose to get the vaccine and do not administer your biologic. Then, wait 2 weeks after your booster vaccine before administering your next dose of your biologic. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your physician.
