Vaccinations for rheumatoid arthritis.
The goal of this paper is to highlight the most recent literature on the key vaccines and the specific considerations for the rheumatologist and their rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients, with a particular focus on influenza, pneumococcal, and herpes zoster vaccines. It is important for rheumatologists to understand which vaccines are live and what potential contraindications exist for giving vaccines to RA patients.
