Here is the website I mentioned that shows the rate and type of side effects people report in an SMS survey after their COVID-19 vaccine. More data updated each week and Moderna will be monitored when it starts being delivered later this month:

Are there any plans to vaccinate children under 12 with PID?

https://www.health.gov.au/sites/default/files/documents/2021/03/atagi-covid-19-vaccination-decision-guide-for-people-with-immunocompromise.pdf - this is general guidance but agree with Alisa that also seek input from trusted specialist if you have particular concerns around timing for circumstance.
Jo Leaper

are there some immune conditions that just won't respond to the covid virus? ie IgA deficient
Jen Halbert
57:35
If no antibodies are made but T cells develop memory - what response does that memory trigger
Caitlin Dowell
57:37
Given the key importance of T cells for the effectiveness of COVID vaccines. Is there any evidence about the effectiveness of the vaccines for PIDs with disrupted T cell function like Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome?
Paul Kinna
58:12
Should your booster be the same Vaccine you initially had {AZ)or an alternative {Pfizer}
Jo Leaper
58:26
Stuart, is there a specific T-Cell that's responsible for picking up where IgA can't?
Bianca Willis
01:02:53
Will SCIG treatment and the COVID antibodies still be effective against COVID if you have made no or limited response yourself? Would you still expect a CVID patient to be hospitalised if they become infected with COVID?

Thank you, this webinar has been extremely helpful.
Caitlin Dowell
01:14:15
Has there been any evidence internationally that the case fatality rate for the PID population has declined in countries as population vaccination rates rise?
Tim Sullivan
01:15:45
I feel like this could go all night, in the most positive way. Would love to attend further sessions on this topic (and thanks for holding it in the evening so that I can attend after work!).
Professor Stuart Tangye
01:16:06
HI Caitlin - its too early to know yet, but hopefully that info will come out in the medical literature over the next 12 months
Professor Kristine Macartney
01:16:06
Yes, Caitln, in countries with high vaccination rates, the risk for hospitalisation and death is falling across the vaccinated population. Its so important for those with immunodeficiency to advocate for vaccination of all of those around them
Ann Midgley
