Is the following statement true or false?

Patients with RA taking disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) have reduced vaccine responses, particularly when taking certain DMARDs. Patients taking such DMARDs experience both a more reduced antibody and diminished T-cell response compared with patients taking other DMARDs.
