Society for Endocrinology statement on COVID-19 vaccines

Dec 18, 2020

The Society for Endocrinology has released a statement on COVID-19 vaccines for patients with endocrine conditions – which states:

We are not aware of any specific side effects of a COVID-19 vaccine that would be unique to people with endocrine conditions” and that “people with adrenal insufficiency are not at an increased risk of having bad reactions to vaccines”. They recommend that “if you were to feel unwell after vaccination, do double your hydrocortisone or prednisolone as you would normally for sick day rules”.  

Read the full statement on their website.
