Hi everyone, I was hoping to hear some of your thoughts about the COVID vaccine.

I just saw my rheumatologist the other day and he assured me that I could get the vaccine with my eyes closed. I'm on oral methotrexate currently. 

I for sure do want to get vaccinated but I expect I'm way down low on the list because of my age. Has anyone here already been vaccinated? How did it go?

Thanks!

I have no intention of getting vaccine until they figure out long term dosage. Need for multiple vaccine every yr. new strain will not be covered with this current vaccine. I am just very careful. Wear my mask if i have to go out

O was told to take one however I’ve read articles that fda unsure of how people with weakens immunity will react I also am unsure myself as they don’t know how long this vaccine is effective for. So once more evidence is out to where I know more I will make an educated decision at that time
