The MAA Medical Advisory Board have issued the following advice for people with Myasthenia who have questions about the Covid vaccinations currently being discussed.
The doctors are closely monitoring information as it is made available via the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) and through published papers. Currently there is little information available in regard to immune suppressed people receiving the vaccination. However, the consensus of the Doctors is that ALL patients with Myasthenia should be vaccinated when available. The Doctors will communicate further as soon as they have additional information about the proposed vaccines. The MAA and State Associations will share this information promptly via the usual channels.
