Hi @jane1989,

I’m very sorry to hear you’ve been noticing a change in your dad’s Parkinson’s symptoms after having received the Covid-19 vaccine. You’ve come to the right place though for support, and I hope other members will be along soon to share their experiences with you. Any time that you have questions or concerns about something, or just need to chat, please feel free to share here.

I would recommend that you reach out to your dad’s GP, Parkinson’s nurse, or specialist if possible to discuss how he’s feeling. They will know his needs best and may be able to make some suggestions on how to proceed forward. Communication around changes in symptoms is very important.

You can also contact our helpline regarding this, or anything else Parkinson’s related, whenever you need it. You can connect with them on 0808 800 0303.

Best wishes,
