Rheumatic illnesses are chronic diseases that cause the immune system to attack the bodies joints, muscles, bones, and organs (Mayo Clinic Health System, 2022). In many cases, rheumatic illnesses can cause severe disability and end organ damage leading to mortality if left untreated. Many rheumatological patients are on biologic disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (bDMARDs) and this has significantly improved the outcome for patients with rheumatic diseases (Humphreys et al., 2016). These medications work by suppressing the immune system to control inflammation and bDMARDs have significantly improved the quality of life of individuals with rheumatological conditions. Unfortunately, patients who are on bDMARDs are at an increased risk of infections (Arthritis Foundation, 2022). The risk of serious infections became more prominent as the coronavirus pandemic emerged.
