Patients with MSUD are considered high risk for complications from COVID-19 infection due to their metabolic disorder. COVID-19 vaccination significantly decreases the risk of serious complications from COVID-19 in vaccinated patients above the age of 16 years old. MSUD patients should discuss COVID-19 vaccination with their metabolic physician including the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination. Parents of children with MSUD younger than 16 years old, should consider discussing with their own physician the risks and benefits of getting themselves vaccinated to decrease the risk of transmission to their children.
