      May  MS patients can receive the Pfizer vaccine without risking a worsening of their symptoms? Thanks

      The U.S. National MS Society has just updated its COVID vaccine recommendations. For both the Pfizer and the Moderna vaccine they say it’s unlikely either will cause a relapse or worsen symptoms. The vaccines might cause a fever, which may temporarily exacerbate some MS symptoms, but symptoms should ease when the fever is reduced.

      I will be booked an MRI scan, told will take place in a couple of months time when our UK Pandemic Virus calms – slows down, they are currently at their highest at January 2021…My question now is if i am to have gadolinium injected into my arm March – april, what dangers might i face as and when i get called up possibly late March – April for one of our three Covid vaccines, not knowing which of our three i will be given as we cant choose…Do we know if tests were done as to the safety of Gadolinium still floating around inside our bodies mixed with any of our varying three covid vaccines we have going here in UK…I have Primary progressive MS, i am soon to be age 70, diagnosed at age 64…

        Hi Jackie,

        I haven’t seen any info regarding gadolinium and the COVID vaccine. If you can’t get an answer from your MS nurse or doctor you might want to try asking it on the UK MS Society’s website.

      Question, do we know the safety of a mixture of Gadolinium with either Oxford AstraZeneca – Pfizer BioNTech – Moderna, these are the three now being rolled out here in UK…When the time comes for my vaccination which should be around the same time i will be booked for my MRI scan, i will not know which of the three i will be having, we dont get to choose….Do we know what if any tests have been done on these mixtures inside our bodies…

      Ed…i dont have an MS nurse but i did get a telephone booked call with my new Neurology Clinician but of all the things i had written down to talk to him about my deteriorating illness, the important questions were not on my mind nor did he mention anything concerning my question, guess he was not aware that i will be called up near the same date he will be booking my MRI scan, and of course i have no idea how to get to speak to him as he is attached to a few private hospitals, and this was done as a booked telephone only appointment where i had to wait several weeks for my turn…If we never had this Covid it would have been a face to face consultation…

      Good for you, Jackie. It’s now been two months since Moderna shot #2 for my wife and me and it’s been smooth sailing. I hope the same for you.
