Here is the site where you can download the Dept of Health information sent to clinical professionals.
It mentions what to expect after immunisation and the need for immunocompromised people (ie all of us with CLL) to have 2 immunisations.

Stay well.

Had swine flu jab tonight whist i was at GP's having my B12 jab for my Crohn's.
Am puzzled as to wether i should ask about having a 2nd jab as some patients are having two.
I take immunosuppresant drug Azathioprine for my Crohn's & with having CLL too, surely i would need a second jab??

Hi all,

In my contry (Romania) all Hem told us ( cll patients) that it is enable to jab a vaccine ( not only swine flu).Please explain me if could be a good position for us, because I undestand that in UK all people can swine flu vaccination.
Thanks in advance for your replay.
