I know thereโ€™s been a lot of conversation on the efficacy of the Covid Vaccines for people with CLL. Which I am not discussing. It seems getting the Vaccine will allow you to travel in the future. Just read the Australian Government are thinking about some type of vaccine passport and Denmark already has. Qantas have said youโ€™ll need one in order to fly. And Iโ€™m sure other airlines will follow. healthline.com/health-news/... Nothing new for those of us who used to travel and had to have a Yellow Fever vaccination certificate.

Currently in Australia we are not allowed to leave the country unless we have an exemption. Iโ€™ve told my family in UK 2022 ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž

Be safe.

That may be the only way to get young people wanting to get vaccinated.

I wouldnโ€™t just say young people!

There is a lot of conspiracy chatter on some social media โ€” shock horror!! Vaccine passports allegedly prove governments are doing bad things...

Yet you find need of vaccine evidence all over the world.. often in Africa.. International travel requires a little research โ€” all because some countries prefer to avoid outbreak of diseases.. epidemics..

It is obvious and makes perfect sense.

It fits with how vaccines work โ€” by achieving โ€˜herd immunityโ€™ - sufficient immunity in a population that disease prevalence is so minimal that epidemics donโ€™t happen.. just occasional instances, and rare clusters of cases.. which public health is usually able to isolate, quarantine (hospitalise or any form of restriction to their home) until the people are no longer contagious.

Sadly very many are ill educated and chatter about these things as though some form of government control.

Meanwhile, we CLLโ€™ers with immune compromise.. well, we are more reliant upon Vaccinated herd immunity..

Stay safe all. We are all in this together.

Prayers for those members currently ill with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID19)

EE by gum you are right about previous vaccination certification - I travelled to the UK in 1965 with a Yellow Vaccination Booklet certifying I had had Smallpox, Typhoid and Cholera vaccinations before leaving - checked at the UK border before entry.

My grandfather used to travel between UK and NZ and had to provide evidence of immunisation.

It seems premature to be talking of unfettered travel before it's been established that vaccination stops transmission?

I donโ€™t think the days of unfettered travel will be here for sometime. I understand the Vaccine wonโ€™t stop transmission much like the flu jab just make it more palatable. A Doctor friend here is talking about 2024. But there will be strict protocols in place. Iโ€™m still hoping for 2022.

Irish Wolfhounds? Large Lurchers? Or Scottish Deerhounds?

2024 wow, by then we might be on a whole new set of vaccines!

The dog photo on my recent post? Deerhound, but not mine, so I don't know if it's really two dogs, could be one photoshopped. We have a deerhound and a lurcher.

Iโ€™m certainly hoping I can travel abroad again in 2022 - there are so many places I want to see!

I only hope travel in (and to get out of) the States will have similar requirements.

I think youโ€™ll find countries you will be flying to will have requirements. As well as international airlines. Much like when they check you have a visa.

This is the current list where US citizens/residents can fly to

Stay safe.

Those little yellow booklets! I still have mine and always take it with me. You never know when they might ask you for it.

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ but in these uncertain times one never knows when you might need it. Iโ€™ve lost mine ๐Ÿ™„ seriously was told last year by NZ GP have all your immunisations up to date.

My concern is whether or not the covid vaccine works for those of us on Ibrutinib for Waldenstroms

I hope it does. Iโ€™d like to think everyone will have protection. Be safe.
