What are my options now to help protect me from COVID-19?

The overall aim of this webinar is to update patients on the current COVID-19 vaccination and treatment guidance.

18 May 2022

Wondering what should I do if I test positive for COVID-19? Or wondering what data is available about the effectiveness of antiviral treatments in immune compromised patients who caught COVID-19?

Migrating back into society since COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted can be a challenge for immune compromised leukaemia patients and their families. This webinar seeks to explore current guidance regarding vaccination, treatment strategies and processes that are in place to support the immune compromised.

We will be joined by a panel of experts on the 18th of May to discuss the topic in more detail and answer many of your questions.

We will be joined by: 

  • Professor Alex Richter, Institute of Immunology and Immunotherapy
  • Professor and Honorary Consultant in Clinical Immunology, University of Birmingham, Dr Helen Parry, Institute of Immunology and Immunotherapy, Associate Professor and Consultant Haematologist, University of Birmingham
