I have a number of health conditions- far too many to be honest thank you but such is life. I am classed as disabled under PIP & have:- Fibromyalgia, Hyper mobile joints, Osteo arthritis, Anxiety & depression, IBS, Raynauds syndrome, Hemiplegic migraine, Sjorgens syndrome, Meibomian gland dysfunction, Prolapsed disc 5th lumbar, Dercums disease, Bulging vertabral discs L1 to S1, Spinal haemomangia, Hiatus hernia, Hypersensitive bladder.
Some of my conditions are neurological, others are auto immune issues, others inflammatory. I have approached my GP to ask if I can receive a covid vaccine as a person with ‘underlying health conditions’ in the Spring round of covid vaccinations as I have been told I don't qualify as being ‘clinically vulnerable’ but the guidance I have is that I will need to wait for my age group to be vaccinated- I am 55. I have only asked really as for the past 6months or so I have been struggling with bacterial & fungal infections as my immune system has not been great & this tends to be how I am now- I catch everything. I haven't been going out adopting my own ‘shielding’. In an attempt to avoid illness & I really don't want to be ill!!
Please can I ask if anyone with any of my conditions has managed to receive a covid vaccine because of their health conditions?
