      Hi, I was diagnosed with GBS in January 2021 with unusually eye and voice symptoms developing in May/June 2021 (when the rest of my symptoms were improving). I am the patient that the Wellington neurology team consulted Dr Parry about when these additional symptoms developed.
      Now those symptoms and the original GBS symptoms have very much improved and I am expecting to be discharged to my Wellington home in 2-3 weeks.
      I wish to ask what would be the best time to have the Covid vaccine: (a) 12 months from initial symptoms i.e. Jan 2022; (b) 12 months from the last symptoms with eyes and voice i.e. May/June 2022; or (c) any time from now i.e. < 12 months from initial symptoms.
      Thank you
      Ajit Rasiah

      The recommendation is that you should not have any vaccinations (not just COVID) for 12 months from the initial onset of you symptoms. Gareth
