Siegel CA, Melmed GY, McGovern DP, et al. Full text link: SARS-CoV-2 vaccination for patients with inflammatory bowel diseases: recommendations from an international consensus meeting Gut  Published Online First: 20 January 2021. doi: 10.1136/gutjnl-2020-324000

From David Rubin’s Twitter Feed

In the article, they note “the exception is for any live-attenuated virus vaccines or replication-competent viral vector vaccines that come to market.” Currently, all of the vaccines are inactivated (not live-attenuated).

These recommendations apply to approved populations which currently do not include pediatric patients or patients who are pregnant.
