The official position of PropeciaHelp is that the Coronavirus vaccine represents a lower risk than Coronavirus. This is the best that we can ascertain at this time, but obviously, nobody has long term data and we are guided entirely by reports from users of the forum and can only assume that they are posting in good faith.
Because we simply do not have the time or resources to spend our time researching and refuting claims from anti vax sites which have been posted here, we have decided that members may share their own personal experience of coronavirus or the vaccine here, and that is the extent of discussion on the subject. You may not post theories, doubts or accusations about the efficacy of the vaccine, or those who have approved or promoted it’s use here. You should not downplay the risk of coronavirus here. The stakes are too high.
This is not a great restriction: this subject is available all over social media, via Google, everywhere online, and you are free to find appropriate places. We simply do not want it here. Everyone can and should make their own decisions when it comes to their health. We just don’t have the time to make sure that dangerous advice isn’t being posted, or to research the minutiae of it and have to focus our attention on the ongoing work to further scientific/clinical recognition and understanding of PFS.
Based on current reports, the vaccine appears to not represent any greater risk to a PFS patient than any other member of society. Our members have received doses of all of the vaccines that are available, without extraordinary reaction. It is an understandable concern for us, as PFS entails a unique fragility to treatments that would have been well tolerated before in severe cases, but it’s something we can only get an idea about with plain reports of responses.
If you have received a vaccination, please feel free to share your experience in this thread.
