PC Statement On SARS-CoV-2 Vaccines And Psoriasis

Newswise — ST. LOUIS, Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic
continues to have a considerable impact on the provision of appropriate
care to people with psoriasis. In many countries there is currently great
excitement about the potential initiation of vaccination programs to people
at risk and the general population. While this news is to be welcomed, the
impact of psoriasis therapy, particularly systemic therapy, on the
effectiveness and safety of vaccines needs to be considered.

The International Psoriasis Council (IPC) advises physicians and other
healthcare practitioners to take into account the following:

  1. The principal considerations for SARS-CoV-2 vaccines are the same
    as for any vaccine:

    Avoid live-attenuated vaccines if receiving an
    immunosuppressive/immunomodulatory medication and be aware that the
    effectiveness of vaccination may be attenuated in people taking drugs
    that affect the immune system.

  2. Currently the three vaccines closest to use at a population level
    are either RNA-based (Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna) or based on
    replication deficient virus (Oxford/AstraZeneca

    ). Thus, they are not live attenuated vaccines.
  3. We anticipate that most patients with psoriasis who do not have a
    contraindication or a known allergy to a vaccine component will be
    recommended to receive one of these SARS-CoV-2 vaccines as soon as
    possible based on local availability and guidance from local public
    health bodies.
  4. Trials to date have not included people taking drugs that affect the
    immune system and thus the effects of the vaccines in this specific
    population will need to be established.
  5. Many people with psoriasis have raised concerns about potential adverse
    effects of vaccines on their skin disease. However, there is no
    evidence that vaccines affect psoriasis onset or severity.

    Registry data should be collected to inform whether SARS-Cov-2
    vaccines either positively or negatively affect psoriasis outcomes

  6. It is important that all people with psoriasis have access to adequate
    care. This includes access to SARS-CoV-2 vaccines.

The IPC will continue to provide updates to the global dermatology
community as we learn more about SARS-CoV-2, vaccines and their impact on
