    The infections that are common and cause complications in rheumatic diseases are usually vaccine-preventable diseases. In particular, influenza, invasive pneumococcal diseases, tetanus–diphtheria, herpes zoster, and—considering the prevalence in Turkey—hepatitis A and B seem to be appropriate targets for vaccination Table 1. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria. Overall, the flu shot is considered to be safe and effective for people with lupus. People with lupus generally do not have any side effects from the flu shot. When they do, their symptoms are usually mild, such as a local reaction with swelling of the arm at the site of the injection, a bit of low-grade fever and muscle aches.

    Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.

Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is a drug that is classified as an anti-malarial drug. Plaquenil is prescribed for the treatment or prevention of malaria. It is also prescribed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and the side effects of lupus such as hair loss, joint pain, and more. A drug developed over half a century ago to treat malaria is showing signs that it may also help cure COVID-19 -- especially when combined with an antibiotic, a promising new study reveals.

    Early data suggest older people are twice as likely to have serious COVID-19 illness." The CDC website goes on to say: "If you are at increased risk for COVID-19 complications due to age or because you have a severe underlying medical condition, it is especially important for you to take actions to reduce your risk of exposure." It recommends, if COVID-19 is spreading in your community, taking extra measures to put distance between yourself and other people, including staying home as much as possible and avoiding crowds, especially in poorly ventilated spaces.
