Hi Diane: So far there have been more than 1.1 billion doses of COVID vaccine administered worldwide and there has not been a single case of new GBS or recurrence of prior GBS. By contrast, there have been dozens of cases of GBS following COVID infecti0n. Thus, we can say that the risk to your husband from getting the vaccine is tiny (less than 1 in 1 billion) while the risk of getting GBS with COVID is much higher and the risk of dying from COVID very much higher so I recommend getting the vaccination.
