Covid-19 Background

Covid-19 vaccinations and vasculitis

In News by John Geddes

Vasculitis UK has produced a brief guide on Covid-19 vaccination and issues for vasculitis patients. (Updated 4 February 2021).

UPDATE: Tuesday 9 February 2021

People living in England who are over-70 or are “clinically extremely vulnerable” and haven’t been invited for their first COVID-19 vaccine dose are now encouraged to contact the NHS.

People in these groups can book their vaccine online or by calling 119.

Please bear in mind that not everyone with vasculitis is considered “clinically extremely vulnerable”. Only those who have received shielding advice in the past are currently eligible.
