I am a nurse soon receiving a COVID-19 vaccine while living with AxSpA. Should I be worried?

Hi my name is Helen and I have had a recent diagnosis of axial spondyloarthritis, I work as a nurse and am really worried about how this will effect my work. I also have a very specific question as I am due to get a COVID 19 vaccine as a front line worker this week and wondering if I should be cautious with this new diagnosis I have. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

  1. Hi hgc24,

    I think a lot of people are looking for information about the COVID-19 vaccine and how it might affect spondyloarthritis.

    At this time, the Arthritis Foundation is stating that there is no advisory warning against vaccinating people with autoimmune diseases.

    If you are interested in finding more about the vaccine, you can read about that here:
