Covid Vaccine And PD

Covid Vaccine And PD

Has anyone experienced a worsening of PD symptoms after the Covid vaccine? I’m due for the new bivalent booster but I feel the last booster worsened my internal tremors. No guidance from the PD dr.

I had a sore arm for a day or two after the shots and boosts.
Because the benefits and risks of COVID-19 vaccines do not appear to be different than in the general population, we recommend COVID-19 vaccination with approved vaccines to persons with PD, unless there is a specific contraindication. Some caution seems warranted in very frail and terminally ill elderly persons with PD living in long-term care facilities.
