Enbrel and monkeypox vaccine

My rheumatologist just told me to take a break for 1 month after getting the vaccine for Monkeypox. Since Enbrel can lower our immune system and since the monkeypox vaccine is a live one, it’s better to postpone my next injection. I guess I better go buy Advil PM at Costco :slight_smile:

That’s interesting. Thank you for sharing this.

Yes, any vaccine we really should check with our rheumatologist before getting, in terms of whether to hold off on any of our meds, and whether we should get the specific vaccine.

I was watching a short news piece on monkey pox yesterday. It looks AWFUL. I understand completely wanting protection.
