All About Vaccines
The GBS|CIDP Foundation is committed to sharing the most accurate information from the world’s leading experts, many from our Global Medical Advisory Board. The articles below, dating back to 2019, have been published in prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals, and offer a wide range of research and information on various vaccines, including COVID-19, as they relate to GBS, CIDP, MMN or related conditions. We understand that there are many opinions creating confusion regarding vaccines, so please consider the source of your information before drawing conclusions. Each of these articles have been reviewed, vetted and recommended as resources by our Global Medical Advisory Board. As always, all decisions should be made with your personal physician based on your own health.
Our recommendation on Monkey Pox vaccine falls in line with our general position on other vaccines. We do not have any “real world” data on this, but vaccines are safe and effective. While nothing is completely risk-free, benefits of vaccination outweigh unproven and unlikely risk.
