Neurological complications associated with vaccine administration are uncommon (Miravelle and Schriiner, 2014). The COVID-19 pandemic has created challenges for patients with neurological conditions and those charged with providing related care. Contracting the virus may lead to a worsening of co-morbid neurological conditions (March et al, 2021)? Novel SARS-CoV-2 vaccinations can reduce the occurrence of infection, however health care professionals and clients have questions and concerns regarding the safety of such vaccines. Immunocompromised patients and those receiving immunotherapies are often concerned with the efficacy and cost to benefit ratio of COVID-19 vaccinations. Improving APP awareness of literature and evidence based practice can have a dramatic improvement on patient outcomes.  Experts in the field recommend encouraging patients with neurological conditions to be vaccinated, however consideration should be given as to when the vaccine should be given in certain populations. This portion of the presentation will highlight related
research and provide a discussion on the benefit of vaccines in targeted population.
