Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine: Sickle Cell Patient Stories
We joined with Dr Rachel Kesse-Adu (consultant haematologist) to talk to five sickle cell patients about their experiences of getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
With the COVID-19 vaccine being rolled out, lots of people got in touch to ask if anyone with sickle cell has had the vaccine.
We spoke to Emma, Liz, Ayo and Ansella about their experience, why they got the vaccine and if they had any side effects. We also heard questions from Anthony, a sickle cell patient who is yet to have the vaccine.
