Hi All, I listened to the ‘Vaccines and the Immunosuppressed’ webinar yesterday led by Prof Tim Spector. Very interesting and lots of questions answered, but still many not answered due to lack of time or the fact that currently there is insufficient data to answer every question. The webinar has been posted on YouTube and there is a transcript.
covid.joinzoe.com will lead you to the site where this is posted. Sorry I cannot give a direct link but I’ve now reached the limit of my IT skills however I’ll bet that someone here knows how to make the webinar more accessible……it’s worth a listen.
Best wishes

I was also out at a hospital appointment but will go in search of it. I am not sure there are really any answers yet to the questions we all want to ask. As a CML patient i can find no real information on what the efficacy of the vaccines have on me. I have seen the percentage of people with anti bodies but this means nothing if you only have a few antibodies but are counted in this making it look like you have more protection than you do. Sample sizes seem very small too so how can it show a true picture. some studies are of about 10 people and have seen nothing over 60 people. Hopefully at some point we may get better numbers so we know where we stand.
