MND Clinicians call for Spring Booster U-turn
Leading MND clinicians have written to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to express their concern about the Spring Booster vaccine rollout. Unlike previous booster doses, the Spring Booster is available only to people who are over-75, resident in a care home, or have compromised immune systems. This means that people with MND who are under 75 are not currently eligible, including those with respiratory compromise.
We call on the Government to reverse its decision immediately and ensure that people living with MND who are at increased risk from COVID-19 can benefit from the protection of the Spring Booster vaccine.
