Answer

No studies have been published addressing the safety of the following vaccines in MS:

  • Pneumonia

  • Meningitis

  • Typhoid

  • Polio

  • Hepatitis A

  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)

  • Pertussis

There are rare reports of demyelination syndromes following administration of the HPV vaccine. Thus, physicians should thoroughly discuss the possible benefits and risks of this vaccine before administering it. [48]
