WMS vaccine recommendations – now also available in Japanese

The World Muscle Society (WMS) has been providing advice for people with neuromuscular disorders, and their healthcare providers since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. There is now also a document aiming to answer questions regarding the newly developed vaccines against Coronavirus SARS-CoV2, asked by people with neuromuscular disorders. This is a rapidly developing field, and the WMS will keep this advice in regular review. We have been delighted that WMS members from around the globe have now translated the documents into so many languages which demonstrates the true value of sharing this information as well as the international reach the neuromuscular community has. The latest translation to be added is Japanese, which has been kindly coordinated by Prof Yoshihide Sunada, Kawasaki Medical School, Kurashiki-City, Okayama, Japan.
