“With all the talk about Covid-19 vaccines in the media at the moment, here at the MS Trust we’re starting to receive questions from people with MS about what a vaccine might mean for them.

 

To try and find some answers, we spoke to Professor Alasdair Coles, a consultant neurologist based at Addenbrooke’s in Cambridge. “

    • Hepatitis B vaccine

      I was diagnosed with MS 10 years ago, I have relapse and remitting MS. Thankfully I have very mild and brief relapses, and I’m not receiving any treatment for my MS.   I have recently met a partner who has told me they have chronic hepatitis B, which has left me with a huge dilemma. If I was to stay with my partner I’d need to receive the Hepatitis B vaccine to safeguard myself, but I’m uneasy with the idea of having the Hepatitis B vaccine as the link between the vaccine and MS is negative. And I wouldn’t want to do anything that could cause my MS to progress.   I’d be grateful if I could hear others experiences with their MS and having the Hepatitis B vaccine please.
