Having got another letter dated Feb 15th telling me to shield until March 31st despite having had one jab, I am wondering if anyone on this site knows anything about the data for people with blood cancer as I believe the scientists were unsure if it works with us. On the 2nd page of this letter it states "Even if you have had both doses of the vaccine, you should continue to follow this shielding guidance as we continue to assess the impact of vaccination among all groups". This cannot refer to age as last night's evidence showed the elderly get high protection from the vaccine. I have heard that the Hammersmith is trying to recruit patients for bloods for this before and after the jab but they are finding it hard to synchronise the timing with clinic appointments.
I would love to be able to meet my 3 week old grandson asap!
