COVID-19 Vaccination And Vitiligo

COVID-19 Vaccination And Vitiligo

Hello
I want to ask that should I go for COVID-19 vaccination ? My main concern is that the vaccine will make the immune system more enhanced to fight against corona virus so I think it will also effect Vitiligo
Kindly answer
Thank you

Oh btw, the vaccine didn’t change my spots. Now I just received the booster so I can’t say anything about that but I’m thinking my spots will stay as they are and progress whenever they want.

I also decided to take the Pfizer vax last July and I do not believe it caused any change in my Vitiligo. I did as much research as I could before making my decision.

For any vaccine I always suggest talking to your own doctor. Now in saying that. I really did NOT want it, didn’t even plan to get the vaccine, however; due to my husband having to get it for work my whole family decided to get the vaccine. I spoke to at least 5 of my different doctors (including my pediatrician) and they all said yes to getting the vaccine. Now, I hadn’t planned on getting a booster either but since I’ll be getting major surgery soon I just decided to get the booster but still again after talking to a few of my doctors. I get why people don’t want to get the shot but you have to make a choice for your own body. No matter who does or doesn’t want the shot.

Please get vaccinated. My Vitiligo is repigmenting even though I got vaccinated with biontech twice. I changed my diet and my vitiligo is healing. Going to get my booster soon. Let's stop this pandemic together!
