As the United States begins to move past the pandemic and toward something much closer to life as we once knew it, I've received a lot of questions from members of the RealTalk MS listener community who are concerned about how their disease-modifying therapy may affect the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine, whether the authorized vaccines will protect them from variants, and whether they should continue wearing a mask, despite encouraging recommendations from the CDC.
As Chair of the National MS Society's National Medical Advisory Committee, Dr. Nancy Sicotte also leads the MS Society's COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Group. And Dr. Sicotte is joining me once again to answer your questions and resolve some of the confusion around these important topics.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
World MS Day is May 30th :25
Dr. Sicotte answers your questions about Vaccines and DMTs, Variants, Masks, and More 3:03
