MS and immunization



Immunization through vaccination has been shown to effectively protect people from infections [1]. However, concerns about vaccination led to declining vaccine coverage representing a threat to people at higher risk of infections [1]. Patients with MS are at increased risk of infections and some MS therapies may amplify this risk [2,3]. Moreover, some MS therapies may influence the immune response against immunizations and their safety, complicating vaccination protocols for patients with MS [1]. To provide support to clinical neurologists, many societies and expert committees have recently published guidelines for either vaccination in general [1,4-7] or specifically for COVID vaccines [8].
