Vaccination advice

"I am 66 years old. I was diagnosed with PPMS last year. I received my 1st half Ocrevus infusion on 10/18/21. My 2nd half infusion on 11/02/21. And am due my 1st full infusion on 05/06/22. I received my 3rd full Moderna vaccination on 01/27/22. I want to get my Moderna booster but I don't want this to interfere with my infusion in May. I would appreciate your thoughts on when I can safely do this. Thanks."

  1. Hi! If you haven't already, I suggest asking your neurologist about this. Also, here is an article from the NMSS about the timing of vaccines that may help Warmly, Debbie (Team Member)

    1. Thank you for your reply. I had already read this article in addition to several others. One article said wait 5 months after last Covid vaccination before receiving booster. This would be the end of June. I am getting my next Ocrevus infusion on May 6th. Another article said wait at least 3 months after last dose of DMT. This would mean that I would have to wait until August before getting my booster. I will speak with my neurologist. But, I was just hoping to get additional information to help me weigh my options.
