AB (IgG), I A shows no antibodies to Covid 19

Posted by jmb73 @jmb73, Mar 14 8:23am

Hi Everyone, I had the Moderna vaccines in Jan. Then my PC ordered a Sars COV2 Serology AB (IGG), IA blood test on March 10, to see if I have any antibodies. It came our negative. I do have a low immune system so she is ordering an IgG, IgA and IgM blood test. My research on Google shows that antibody tests aren't accurate unless you have had Covid 19. I trust my PC but have any of you had this issue? I am leary about going until I get the new blood results. In 2016 (I think) had the 2 pneumonia shots- but in 2018 I kept getting pneumonia and was in the hospital every other month with it. An immunologist tested me and found I had no immunity to pneumonia. He gave me a 3rd shot and the tests showed some improvement. This doc also tested for IgG, IgA & IgM and it showed that I was very low. I still get pneumonia -usually from a cold -but not as bad. I do have asthma, COPD (never smoked) and Sjogren's plus osteo arthritis, fibro, meningioma, AFIB etc. I have worn a mask since Jan of 2019 when I was in the hospital for pneumonia and asthma etc. The nurses told me to wear on all the time when I was out. I wear one all the time and have not been in the hospital since 1/2019 and I think that is because I wear a mask. Have any of you experienced anything like this where your body rejects vaccines?
Thank you. Joan

Did you have a reaction from the Moderna vaccine?
I agree that mask wearing and not being in large crowds has kept many from getting sick.
I was diagnosed with Bronchiectasis during this pandemic. I know I’m feeling depressed because I have little desire to get back out there for fear of getting sick with even a cold. I won’t hesitate to wear a mask although the mandates will be lifted in April in my state. But how do you wear a mask if you go out to eat? My birthday is coming up and my friends want to finally go out to lunch with me. I’m not excited. Is this going to be the new me?

This hesitation is normal, I think. I had it when diagnosed a few years ago, and actually was wearing masks in some situations before Covid and fanatically avoiding getting sick with sanitizing surfaces & hands and staying apart from anyone who had a cold.

We are fully vaccinated & beginning to move about, but so far I have resolved it for myself by doing the following –
Masks whenever I'm out, whether others are wearing or not, and leaving anywhere I feel is too crowded.
Not gathering indoors other than with my immediate family (we have been our own bubble for many months) or vaccinated friends.
Eating out – outdoors only so far, except one trusted local place with great distancing & safety protocols.
We will travel this week, and are planning some takeout along the way. We will try to choose motels with outdoor entrances to each room, and ventilate/sanitize on arrival. (We have traveled safely this way 3 times during the pandemic.)
No masks are required at our destination, so we will likely return to curbside pickup for our groceries.

If my friends asked me out, I would go if there was a place to eat on the patio…but maybe I am a risk-taker.

I had no reaction to the vaccine. My arm wasn't even sore. Wearing a mask these past 3 years has helped me avoid getting sick but I agree it's impossible to eat with one on! Perhaps, you could sit at the end of the table and have everyone else be 2 seats away. Good luck, Joan
