I just wondered if there was any information about the new vaccines that are going to be available and those of us on DMD treatments. I have had 2 course of Ocrevus which I do appreciate lowers my immunity, but this new vaccine has got the live virus in it, so that "normal" people will be able to build an immnunity, so really my question is, if my family have the vaccine, am I going to be at risk? My daughter (who lives with me at 20!) is a care worker in a residential home, so will be offered it. What are the risks of me catching Covid-19 if she has the vaccine?
Can anyone offer any answers or direction.
Thanks all, I really do find comfort in the information I read on here.
