Cerebral palsy and the Covid-19 Vaccines

Is anyone else concerned about administering the Covid vaccine in case of side effects? My daughter had convulsions as a baby after the routine jabs.  She has quadriplegia cerebral palsy.

    @katherinesewell at the end of the day I think its down to personal choice  maybe talking to your dr might help

    Hi @katherinesewell I’m Emma, one of the Community Champions who are here to help and advise, I would recommend speaking to your GP about your concerns and see what they suggest. I’m also going to tag @Richard_Scope to see if he can assist you regarding CP information. I have CP myself, so I know it’s a difficult time right now. Please give me a shout if you need anything at all and let me know how you are getting on.

    Hi @katherinesewell
    Welcome to the community. At the moment there is no evidence the people with CP have negative reactions to the Covid-19 vaccines.
    Were the reasons for your daughter's convulsions after her childhood jabs ever discovered? As has been suggested I would have a conversation with your G.P. about your concerns.
