Covid-19 vaccine information

Here’s a series of videos which address questions I have had over the last couple of months from patients regarding the Covid-19 vaccine.

It is intended for patients who are currently under my care and especially for those who are on immunosuppressive treatments.

This is for informational purposes only and should not be considered medical advice – but I hope it goes some way to addressing some of your questions and concerns.

(And yes. I’ll be getting the Covid 19 vaccine as soon as its offered to me.)
