After vaccine

Has anyone here noticed any change in their parkinsons symptoms after having the vaccine?

My WWP had 1st dose of AstraZeneca vaccine on 23rd February. She is 62 years old. We have not noticed any change in her Parkinson’s symptoms.

The pain in my arm actually eased!

Yes, my medication seemed to be less effective. What did you notice?

Hi @Summerson,

It’s a little concerning that you’re medication is less effective since receiving your vaccine; have you raised this with your GP? If not, I’d encourage you to consult with your GP or Parkinson’s nurse and please make a note of your side effects on the Yellow Card website.

For more support on this, you’re more than welcome to give our helpline a call on 0808 800 0303.

Best wishes,
Reah

I have had both doses of vaccine and have had no side effects and my Parkinson’s doesn’t seem to have been affected at all
