Vaccine Recommendation after severe Covid and monocolonal treatment?

Posted by nichirschfield @nichirschfield, Jan 13 10:14am

My husband had severe Covid (non-vaccinated)at the end of October. Got monocolonal treatment in the hospital on Day 10, ended up on a ventilator for 2 weeks. We were advised not to get vaccine until 3 months after the monocolonal treatment. We are approaching that at the end of January. Any recommendations on which vaccine to get and any info we should know about getting first vaccine after all of this?
Thank you

Welcome @nichirschfield. That must've been very frightening for both of you for your husband to have had such a severe case of COVID.

Mayo Clinic also advises waiting 90 days (3 months) after monoclonal antibody treatment before getting the vaccine. Mayo Clinic and the CDC recommend getting an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine over getting the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

"Recent research also suggests that people who got COVID-19 in 2020 and then received mRNA vaccines produce very high levels of antibodies that are likely effective against current and, possibly, future variants. Some scientists call this hybrid immunity. Further research is needed."
