Reply To: Covid 19 Vaccine

I’ve put off getting the vaccine so long because anyone with a history of GBS was excluded from all the testing. However I have found a study (published- JAMA) and I think I am finally going to get it. The thought of having a recurrence terrifies me beyond all belief. Going back to before I recovered (partially) is like my living nightmare.

I think the risk of relapse is higher with the virus than with the vaccine, but real data is hard to find. Below is the best study I’ve found & its the best research so far. It looks as though 1 in 702 had a relapse that required short term medical care. 5 total had some issues, 4 of which were released quickly from the emergency room. Please let me know what you all think!
