As we continue to learn more about COVID-19, we now know that people who are living with HIV do not respond as well to COVID-19 vaccines as HIV-negative people do. A study from the University of California, San Francisco matched 100 people with HIV infection to 100 people without HIV infection and compared the COVID-19 antibody levels between the 2 groups after they received both doses of either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines. The odds of having no response to the vaccines was more than 2-fold greater in those living with HIV. The factors that seemed connected to a poorer response to vaccine was (1) having a low T cell count; (2) not being undetectable and (3) getting the Pfizer instead of the Moderna vaccine.

Each group had about 13 women each.
