Covid-19 Vaccinations

The ME Association regularly updates its information on all aspects of COVID vaccination and collects feedback on adverse reactions.

 

The latest update, which was published on Sunday 16th May 2021, can be found HERE.

 

This also includes an update (from the same date) on the situation regarding second dose reactions.

 

Trying to get into meaningful correspondence with the JCVI on the subject of group 6 eligibility for people with ME/CFS has been a real uphill struggle.

 

And as far as issuing any form of an alert or investigation into what is happening to some people with ME/CFS, the JCVI will almost certainly pass this to the MHRA - who will want to see evidence from the Yellow Card reporting system that these reactions are occurring.

 

At the moment the MEA is collecting the evidence and continuing to alert people with ME/CFS that, as with any vaccination, there is a risk that this can cause an exacerbation of ME/CFS symptoms. In a smaller number of people there may be a more severe and persistent exacerbation or relapse to a COVID vaccine.

 

The MEA's general guidance on COVID vaccines and ME/CFS can be found HERE.
