Hello, I would like to know if there are any studies showing the effect of vaccines ( especially annual flu shot and now COVID vaccine) in patients with vitiligo. With the mandatory annual flu shot for health providers and I am very concerned now that my vitiligo seems a little under control.
Thank you,

(My personal opinion and suggestion is, and not scientific and research):
Because our body's reaction to drug and food changes is different from others, so I think you should be wary of any suspicion of entering the body, especially you say that your Viti is under control, I had two meals for stomach pain 20 years ago I drank the syrup and the next day two large spots appeared on my forearms.
