These pages contain information about COVID-19, vaccinations and MS as general advice only. The information provided on this page should not be taken as individual medical advice.

We remain committed to providing the MS community with updated and current information regarding COVID-19 and vaccinations as it becomes available, including regular review of these web pages. The organisational guidance documents we recommend reading for people and families living with MS comes from a number of reputable sources. These include:
- A group of local neurologists with a special interest in MS through the Australian and New Zealand Association of Neurologists (ANZAN)
- An international MS group, led by the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation (MSIF)
- MS Research Australia together with the ANZAN MS group have provided COVID-19 vaccination guidance addressing many common questions about the vaccination process and living with MS through the vaccination roll-out across the country
If you still have questions that are not answered in these resources, please contact your neurologist, MS health care team or your GP. Together we can build on the extensive information we already have gained through the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to help people and families living with MS to live their best lives possible as we navigate this new world.
