can i have the covid vaccine when i take co benaldopa

Hi @cassie69,

The short answer is yes! Dr Donald Grosset, our Clinical Director, has stated that the vaccine is safe for people with Parkinson’s and there are no interactions with Parkinson’s medication:

That being said, you should always consult your GP, Parkinson’s nurse, or specialist before taking a new drug or vaccine. They will be able to advise on what’s best for you, as well as answer any questions you may have.

You can also reach out to one of our advisers on our Hotline at 0808 800 0303 with any queries or concerns you may have about the vaccine.

Best wishes,
