Relapsing remitting MS/Secondary progressive MS/Primary progressive MS/ Relapsing MS
COVID-19 vaccines are now being rolled out. Many people living with MS are treated with drugs that affect their immune system, and there is not a lot of specific data relating to the administration of the COVID-19 vaccines to a person with MS who is treated for their disease. This is a multi-center study to determine the COVID-19 vaccine immunogenicity and to assess the protection given by vaccines in people living with MS.
