Re: Vaccines for Covid 19

For what it's worth guys, i received a letter today saying that "My adult household contacts are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination."

This is because they are living with someone with "severe immunosuppression".

Gotta arrange through my GP.

Re: Vaccines for Covid 19

Sue et al, Just spoke to my GP who is reasonably clear that this is not a matter of concern. As much as i understand it, the current antibody tests are designed to pick up signs that you have gained immunity from having had Covid. They won't measure if you have had a T-Cell response from the vaccine...

Re: Vaccines for Covid 19

So i had my antibody test and it came back saying that i had none, a bit disappointing. However it doesn't necessarily mean i have no immunity: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/03/120301143426.htm And this comment from an eminent immunologist: https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/k.pollock Sh...

Re: Vaccines for Covid 19

And as a follow up, there was an article in The Times today written by one of their journalists who was immunocompromised as he had blood cancer. He had the vaccine in Jan and has not developed antibodies. I had my first vaccine in Jan, so following that, i have booked an antibody test for myself to...

So are the medical profession!

My renal unit isn't doing them - no reason given - and says GP will contact me. They didn't seem terribly interested TBH.
Was arranged by my renal unit, but i know my GP Surgery is doing it as well.

Re: Vaccines for Covid 19

Getting mine today!

Yippee...

Second one booked in for early April.

Gotta traipse up to St Thomas's though, but relative to sitting at home getting bored, it's a bit of an adventure!

Re: Coronavirus

Interestingly, i got the second letter but not the text.

Also, that gent up the road i mentioned before is now up and walking about. He says he gets tired easily but the Drs expect him to make a full recovery. Nice to have some good news!!!

Re: Coronavirus

Thumps, Dean, I had to have a blood test done for my GP last week. I asked them to do all my renal ones as well. The Sister delivered the forms to the phlebotomist. And when i went in i waited about 2 mins, all masked up, and got them all done. The GP surgery then e-mailed me the renal results for m...

Re: Coronavirus

Wagolyn, I beg to differ about the alcohol hand rub (non alcohol hand sanitiser is ineffective) but fully agree about hand washing and calling 111. I am curious about how great our risks are, being immunosuppressed or on dialysis, if we catch it. There is nothing we can particularly do. A search of...

Re: Coronavirus

Very surprised to be told I wasn’t included on the list (as far as my GP is concerned) which is why I was wondering if they’d been issued with more specific guidance. But I’ve seen the letter that NHS England sent to GPs and it doesn’t look that way. Anyway, I’ve asked that my GP look at it again a...
