Getting ready for round 2 of my Ocrelizumab (Ocrevus) in June. Chatting to my MS Nurse today and he told me that after the MS Team, the neuro-pharmacy bod and the infectious diseases crew met – those meetings must be a bundle of laughs – that it has been decided that I and presumably the other recipients in Oxford need a further two immunisations.
these are Men B and MenACWY. Both versions on the meningococcus vaccine. The B is usually given to newborns in two doses 4 weeks apart. I had to call the practice nurse and explain that I hadn’t lost my mind or misheard something and I did want the jab for babies.
The MenACWY is quite common and is often given to new Uni students as they are all living in close quarters sharing god knows what germs with one another.
So off I toddle on Friday for both and then the follow-up MenB a month later.
To date then:
14 different blood tests (some combined but at least 6 vials of blood)
a chest x-ray
a Pneumococcal jab
a combined jab for two other nasties – it’s late, can’t recall the name
Not at all cautious are they 🙂 Still, better safe than sorry.
I am a walking pincushion.
