Here is My Question:
I read all your answers about Ocrevus and Covid vaccine timing, but don't really understand! If I get the Covid booster, how long should I wait to get the Ocrevus? My last Ocrevus was nine months ago.
If you are already receiving treatment with Ocrevus, it can be difficult to time vaccinations. Different individuals have different risks for COVID19 infection, and this risk should be considered when trying to decide on the timing of a primary vaccine or booster. Whenever possible we recommend waiting at least 3 months after your last Ocrevus infusion to receive either a primary vaccination or a booster. We then recommend waiting at least 2 weeks after your second primary vaccination (Moderna or Pfizer vaccines) or at least 2 weeks after your booster vaccine to receive any further Ocrevus infusions.
