Monday 4th January marked the start of the UK mass vaccination programme against Covid-19. Being fully vaccinated reduces the risk of death and of serious complications by over 90%. Everyone will be exposed to the virus at some point and the vaccines will not prevent infection – but they will stimulate your immune system to create antibodies that could mean you do not become symptomatic.
In this FREE leaflet we discuss: Covid-19 vaccination priority and ME/CFS, the safety of the Covid vaccines in general and for people with ME/CFS, possible side-effects, vaccine administration practicalities, and reaching a decision about whether to have the vaccine or not.
