Hi friends,
Just wondering if all Thals ( minor, major & intermedia ) can safely take the COVID-19 vaccine without any unusual side effects?
There’s not any information on this as far as I know. Pls share whatever you know
Thanks

I have Alpha minor. I had the Pfizer vaccine. After the first shot, after about 4-5 hours I developed a bad backache, just my entire back, and was groggy for the entire next day. After the 2nd shot, I felt fine until about 12 hours later. Then I got a low fever (100), chills, and body aches. I took ibuprofen and felt much better, so I thought that was it. About 6 hours after that, I got a fever again with chills and body aches, this time the fever was between 100-102, plus fatigue. This lasted for a day, then the symptoms lessened. But for a good 4-5 days, I had a fever that bounced up and down between 99-101 and flu-like symptoms (nothing respiratory) and still the fatigue. I don't know anyone else with Alpha thal who has gotten the Pfizer. My dad, who is 83 with Alpha thal, got Moderna and had no symptoms other than some soreness, maybe a little fatigue but no flu symptoms.

Thank you for your reply Riahop. I am still confused and gravitating towards delaying the vaccine. I’m intermedia with alpha triplication & an Hb of 7.6.
Have no confirmation from medical community and Thalassaemia federations across the globe .... 8th May being International Thalassaemia Day hopeful that someone may throw more light on this.
Thank you for your information.
God bless
