COVID-19 mRNA vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) in patients with multiple sclerosis: a statement by a working group convened by the Section of Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology of the Polish Neurological Society.Neurol Neurochir Pol. 2021; 55(1):8-11.NN
A working group convened by the Section of Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology of the Polish Neurological Society has developed a statement with regard to the currently available mRNA vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) preventing novel coronavirus (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, SARS-CoV-2) infection, which causes Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). This statement has been based on the literature available as of 15 January, 2021. The guidance will be updated as new data emerges. All data regarding the above-mentioned vaccines comes from clinical trials which have been reviewed, published and approved by the regulatory authorities [1, 2]. In the current manuscript, whenever a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine is discussed, it refers to mRNA vaccines only.
