Asheville Neurology’s Position Statement on the COVID-19 Vaccine
We have received many questions from our patients regarding whether or not they should get the COVID-19 Vaccine. At this time, based on what we know about the Covid-19 vaccine, there are no neurological contraindications for getting the vaccine. This means that what you are being treated for at Asheville Neurology should not prevent you from getting the vaccine, if you choose to do so.
We are recommending our patients get the vaccine if it is available to them, as complications and/or long-term effects from contracting Covid-19 can be serious. However, Asheville Neurology will not be providing the vaccine at our office. You will need to go through your health department to find out when you can get the vaccine based on availability and your health status. Ultimately, it is your decision whether or not you choose to get the vaccine.
If you’ve had a reaction to the flu vaccine in the past, you will need to talk to your primary care provider and/or your health department regarding this and whether or not to proceed with the Covid-19 vaccine.
