COVID-19 vaccine and biologic / infusion therapy at Gastro Health - Fairfax:
 
Thank you for choosing Gastro Health as your preferred infusion services provider. In our efforts to help our patients differentiate symptoms of post COVID-19 vaccine vs. biologic therapy reaction, we recommend the following: 

  • COVID-19 vaccine should be scheduled 3-4 days after receiving biologic therapy as long as patient is symptom free. 
  • COVID-19 vaccine should be scheduled 3-4 days prior to receiving biologic therapy for established patients. 
  • COVID-19 vaccine should be completed at least 2 weeks before initiating new biologic therapy (CDC, 4/14/21). 
  • Patients must call Infusion Office 703-698-8960 for further advise if post vaccine symptoms continue past 4 days, closer to biologic therapy.
