Covid advice from 19th July
I am 9 months post transplant for AML and doing OK generally. I came off my immunosuppressants a few weeks ago after pretty bad GVHD but I am still taking Gilteritinib as immunotherapy and I am likely to be on that for the next 6 months at least. I have had both Pfizer vaccines but only have 5 antibodies which is very low. I am pretty worried about the opening up on Monday and the current surge in cases. I do not have a problem following the advice of seeing people outside and avoiding people who have not been vaccinated - our son who is 16 has been vaccinated (because of me) but we also have a daughter who is 14 who cannot be vaccinated currently and is desperate to be. I do not want to make my health her responsibility and I do not want to restrict her life anymore than I have done already. Does anyone know whether there is likely to be a change in these rules? She has even suggested deliberately getting infected so she can be safe for me.
I would be grateful for anyone’s comments.
