Webinar, FAQ Report & Decision Aid | COVID-19 & Neuromuscular Disorders: Ask The Experts

Muscular Dystrophy Canada (MDC) and the Neuromuscular Disease Network for Canada (NMD4C) have received numerous questions about COVID-19 vaccines and how they may uniquely affect people with neuromuscular disorders (NMD).

To address these questions and concerns, MDC & NMD4C assembled a diverse group of neuromuscular, virology, and policy experts to host a webinar with the purpose of answering these topical questions.

From this expert-led webinar, the MDC & NMD4C have developed a frequently asked questions report and decision aid tool as resources to summarize the experts’ answers, and to provide guidance for informed patient decision making.

You can access the Frequently Asked Questions Report, Decision Aid, and webinar recording below!
