If you don’t want to read the whole article here are two highlights:
‘Would a Covid-19 vaccine be safe for all people with MS? Are there any risks?
Having MS by itself does not mean that you shouldn’t take the vaccine. There’s no concern that a vaccine will cause MS, trigger a relapse or make your symptoms worse. I would really encourage everyone with MS to look forward to taking this vaccine, unless they’re told that they shouldn’t have it because of the drugs they’re on. There are some disease-modifying drugs (DMD) that are used to treat MS which would make some vaccines either unsafe or ineffective.’
‘Any final thoughts?
There’ll be two clear effects of finding a successful vaccine for people with MS. One is that the more people who take this vaccine, the more it will reduce the number of people who can be infected by Covid-19. Therefore the overall infection rate will decrease, reducing the chance of someone with MS being exposed to someone who has Covid-19. Secondly, people with MS will be offered the vaccine at some point in the future and, if it’s effective for these people, then they will have direct immunity against Covid-19.’
Introducing the November-December issue of Enable magazine. We’re so excited to share our final issue of 2020 with you and would love for you to share the magazine with your network.
As we come into the final months of a strange year, and parts of the UK return to lockdown, feelings of isolation and mental illness may be amplified. We tackle loneliness this issue, speak with experts on how to understand anxiety, before connecting with charities looking at the positive changes the pandemic can make on their services. Plus, we speak with Doddie Weir and Strictly star JJ Chalmers, carers, and look at the virtual festive events for your diary. Enjoy the read, and we’ll see you in 2021!
