Coeliacs On A Gluten-Free Diet And The AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine

I am coeliac and I am on a strict gluten-free diet.

I have not had a serious dose of Covid-19, but I may have had a very mild dose, after a meeting with about twenty Chinese students, that I described in Did I Have A Close Brush With Covid-19?

That would not be possible to check now, but I did have a bad reaction after my AstraZeneca vaccine, which I wrote about in July 2021 in Hay Fever, Coeliac Disease And The AstraZeneca Covid-19 Vaccine. I also told my GP about it and he said he’d heard similar tales.

I had no reaction to my second AstraZeneca vaccine.

This year my hay fever was even worse. Is this due to my immune system being boosted by the vaccines?

Yesterday, at a funeral, I met an old friend, who is on a strict gluten-free diet and she had not had a serious dose of Covid-19. But like me, she did have a serious reaction to her first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

I’d like to hear any experiences of coeliacs on a gluten-free diet during the pandemic.
