Is it safe for people who have had Guillain-Barre to get vaccinated?
Yes, it is safe for people who have had Guillain-Barre syndrome to get the COVID vaccines. People with this condition can safely get any of the current COVID vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson). The only reason a person cannot safely get the vaccine is if they have had a severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis to one of the components of the vaccine.
If you are concerned about the safety of getting a vaccine due to your particular health condition, speak to your doctor.
