Hi To everybody. My name is Jim and I’d like to ask the community for some advice regarding pneumonia vaccinations. I was diagnosed with CLL at about the time of the Coronavirus outbreak in early February…
My consultant wrote to my gp advising him to inoculate me against pneumonia "initially with Prevnar followed by Pneumovax II ". The surgery was completely out of stock with no clear idea as to when stocks would arrive. I sourced a pneumococcal vaccine from Boots which the surgery administered and that protects me against a number of strains.
I do now however need a Pneumovax vaccine which is not available at Boots and wonder whether anybody in the community can point me in the right direction.
Thank you for bearing with me and Happy Easter to all!
