Abstract :

An internist recognizes that COVID-19 vaccination might not work for her because she battles an infection that requires taking rituximab, a drug that blunts the response to the vaccine. Living immunocompromised during the pandemic, she feels unprotected. With this realization, she is conflicted about returning to life before the pandemic.
