COVID-19 Vaccination And Vitiligo
A MyVitiligoTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

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!

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 posted in another post that my vitiligo started 10 days after i took covid and flu shot together. It will be difficult to prove a link. But just because for some people there was no change in their vitiligo does not mean there is no link. That is biology. It is quite variable. Similar to how Protopic works for some but not for others.

I took 2 shots nothing happened. My vitiligo didn’t change with the vaccine

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.
