We are closely watching the COVID-19 situation and taking action as we all move forward. We know that the best information for someone living with MS about their unique situation comes from their healthcare providers, and we refer them to you first whenever possible. But we also know that due to the unique circumstances around COVID-19, that may be more difficult.

We are here to partner with you to provide your patients with a trustworthy platform of fact-based information about COVID19 and multiple sclerosis, including information on the COVID-19 vaccine. The MS Navigator® program is an excellent resource for MS-specific support and information nationwide.
