In this episode of "BeeWellWithMS," we delve into the crucial topic of vaccinations for individuals living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Explore expert insights on the safety of vaccines, the effectiveness of vaccines while on Disease Modifying Therapies (DMTs), and the strategic timing of vaccinations to optimize your health.Discover when to schedule your vaccinations, taking into account disease activity and DMTs, with advice from a neurologist. Gain a better understanding of the differences between active attenuated and inactive vaccines, enabling you to make informed choices for your MS journey.Additionally, we explore how various DMTs can impact vaccine effectiveness and provide valuable guidance. Stay up-to-date with the latest developments and empower yourself with knowledge. Stay informed, empowered, and well with "BeeWellWithMS''.
