Here is My Question:
Should patients taking Tysabri get a booster shot for COVID-10? Thanks!
All people, with or without MS, over the age of 12 will require COVID19 booster shots. Starting in September all states will provide boosters to anyone over the age of 12 if it has been at least 8 months since their second vaccine dose with either the Pfizer or Moderna COVID19 vaccines. There is still no consensus in the US for boosters in those who received the single dose J&J vaccine, but it is reasonable to obtain a booster with another vaccine if you are immunosuppressed and received the J&J vaccine.
COVID19 vaccine boosters should be given as soon as possible (as early as 28 days after your second COVID19 vaccine shot) to the following people with MS :
