The following link gives the latest guidance for rheumatologists on the Covid 19 vaccines with the medications we take https://www.rheumatology.org/Portal...nical-Guidance-Rheumatic-Diseases-Summary.pdf Notice that all throughout they say for the physician to tailor it to the individual patient and their disease activity. Most medications don't need any modifications with timing but a few do to increase the effectiveness.

I'm not sure what to do as I'm always on >20mg of prednisone, Plaquenil, cyclosporine, and imuran. I doubt I would launch a response -and if I did a modest one, it takes about nothing to spur on a flare. I appreciate your posting this. Thanks!

You are definitely one of the people needing advice from your doctor. Mine was honest and said she didn't know if the vaccine would set off a flare but she felt that any coverage was better than none. Getting enough coverage to block serious disease is our goal.
Good luck with your decision.

Take care,
