Blood Cancer U.K. have issued the following statement:
“ We’re delighted to hear Sajid Javid today give his assurance in Parliament that the NHS will inform and advise people with blood cancer about what they can do to protect themselves”
We’re pleased he has now committed to them being informed. Once this happens, people with blood cancer will be able to make their own informed decisions about what they do to keep safe.
“Last week, our survey of people with blood cancer showed that 80% hadn’t been told their compromised immune systems meant the vaccines may not have worked for them”
“We’re committed to working with UK government and the NHS on this, and look forward to hearing more details. With the rising infection, there’s an urgent need for this to happen as quickly as possible. Until it does, lives are being put at risk unnecessarily”
