Rheumatoid Arthritis Quiz: DMARDs and Immune Response to COVID-19 Vaccination

COVID-19 vaccines and drugs for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) don’t always mix well. How much do you know about how RA medications impact the immune response generated by COVID-19 vaccines?

Is the following statement true or false?

Patients with RA taking disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) have reduced vaccine responses, particularly when taking certain DMARDs. Patients taking such DMARDs experience both a more reduced antibody and diminished T-cell response compared with patients taking other DMARDs.
