    I recently read that Parkinson’s patients may be at a higher risk of being hospitalized with Covid-19, which makes me worry a lot for my Dad. He has been vaccinated for quite a while, but I know that doesn’t mean we’re impervious to the virus. Are you worried about Covid-19’s impact on Parkinson’s? Are you family members vaccinated?

    Yes, we are worried. I think any infection could be bad for Parkinsons. My HWP’s symptoms got much worse after having a sepsis infection. We have both already received our third vaccine. We wear masks in any indoor situation again.
