Has anyone heard anything about Novavax, a COVID vaccine currently being studied that uses an older platform, the same used by the Hep B vaccine and the Pertussis vaccine? It is said to have fewer and less severe side effects in the current studies. I am wondering if this vaccine might work for autoimmune folks. My last HALF DOSE flu vaccination a decade ago came near to putting me in the hospital and added POTS to my autoimmune issues.
I just read about Novavax too…I am really hopeful it may be an answer for us. I havent gotten vaccine yet…still isolating…due to all the bad side effects I’ve read about here from fellow fibro sufferers in reaction to the current vaccines. Really hoping Novavax will be a better option. Not sure when it will be out? If anyone gets it please let us know!
I’ve been following Novavax because I would rather take it instead of the MRNA vaccine for the reasons that have been mentioned on this thread. Unfortunately, the developers have had some set backs because they haven’t been able to secure the raw materials that they need. Furthermore, the FDA has halted their progress until they resolve some undisclosed concerns. It doesn’t look like it will be available in the US anytime soon. Unfortunately, my employer is mandating that I get vaccinated, and I’m really worried about debilitating flare ups that could effect my work. I was really hoping that Novavax would be available before I’m required to be vaccinated by October 1st, 2021, but I don’t see that it will be available before then.
Hi, I got my first dose of novavax today. I tried to wait with the vaccine as much as I can, and my GP was able to provide me medical exemption till it is available.
I hope I won’t have any major issues, because I really struggled in the last 6 months with my health
