For people with MLD, the British Inherited Metabolic Disease Group (BIMDG), has stated that either of the COVID-19 vaccinations offered is considered safe for all inherited metabolic disorders.  At the moment vaccination is only offered to those 16 and over, and if you have any worries we suggest you contact your Consultant or metabolic unit for clarification.

BIMDG is the professional society for health professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of individuals with inherited metabolic disease, which includes MLD. They have published an information sheet on COVID-19 vaccinations which can be downloaded here
