Hi, thank you for reaching and asking us a question.

We understand your curiosity and concern regarding is it safe for a Sjorgen’s syndrome patient to take a COVID-19 vaccine. We will try to assist you in this matter.

As a matter of fact, COVID-19 vaccine is safe and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated that the person with autoimmune disease may receive the vaccine and they acknowledge that there are no data available on the safety of the vaccine for the individuals with autoimmune diseases.

Back to the question, is Sjorgen’s syndrome’s patient should take the vaccine?
The answer is yes. But the patient needs to be evaluated further and a discussion with the doctor is highly encouraged so that the patient know how the vaccine work and how the vaccine could protect them from complications of COVID-19 infection.

We also suggests you to speak with our doctors online so that you can have more insights regarding the vaccination and the condition you are having.
