Swine flu and MS

The NHS Choices website reports that whilst the risk profile of the swine flu virus is still being studied, it is already known that certain groups are more vulnerable. This includes people with chronic neurological conditions including MS who are advised to start taking antivirals as soon as they are confirmed with the illness.

When a vaccine becomes available, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has advised that people in clinical risk groups, which include some people with a long-term (chronic) condition and their carers, will be priority groups for treatment.
