Reply To: Tetanus Shot after GBS

December 18, 2019 at 6:57 pm

I raised the vaccine question at a neurology followup today. I’m particularly interested in the shingrix (not so much the flu shot, which my doctors attributed the GBS to), since I’ve already had the first of two shots and think there’s a decent chance of my getting shingles without the vaccine. The neurologists seem to initially lean against taking vaccines, at least in the first few months or even year or two after contracting GBS. When pressed a little, my doctors agreed to consult with an immunologist before giving me a definitive recommendation. I don’t know what medical professionals think about this, but to me this is more of an immunology question than a neurology question.
