COVID vaccination and breast cancer
It’s hard enough dealing with the challenges of breast cancer, let alone trying to navigate a safe path through a pandemic. We’re aware that many women being treated for breast cancer have a lot of questions about Covid vaccination.
To answer those questions, BCAC got together with Sweet Louise and Metavivors NZ to organise an online vax chat session with two expert oncologists, Richard Isaacs (Palmerston North) and Sarah Barton (Wellington) as well as Auckland anaesthetist and vaccine expert Morgan Edwards.
We invited members of Sweet Louise and Metavivors NZ to put their questions to our expert panel. The answers provided apply equally to women with advanced and early breast cancer, so check out the online video discussion, facilitated by BCAC Chair Libby Burgess, and read the full set of questions and answers here.
