Sian's blog - April
This is Sian's second blog post for us and in the below video she talks about why she is blogging with Scleroderma & Raynaud's UK and we get to meet her lovely dog, Eddie.
In the fight against coronavirus, an effective vaccination could be the game-changer that the world is waiting for. It typically takes several years to develop a new vaccine, so how close are we to finding a real vaccination for coronavirus, and how might this work to protect us?
Many people are entitled to a free flu jab this year, and you may have received a letter about this. But why is this important and what are the benefits? And is there anyone who should not have the flu vaccine? We have all the answers you need.
Together with our partner organisations of RAIRDA (The Rare Autoimmune Rheumatic Diseases Alliance), we have released a joint statement in response to the recent rise in coronavirus cases. This is regarding the effect of the pandemic on the ongoing, continuing care of people with rare, autoimmune conditions, including scleroderma; as well as the issue of shielding.
