A mum-of-two with stage four cancer says she feels safe enough to continue chemotherapy after receiving a leftover coronavirus vaccine.
Vicki Meredew was diagnosed with a glioblastoma – a terminal brain tumour – in August 2019.
The 41-year-old has already had months of radiotherapy and chemotherapy but her latest palliative treatment was put on hold because of the pandemic.
After a chance phone call with her GP to check where she was on the vaccine priority group list, she was able to get her first Covid-19 vaccine dose that day.
Vicki’s due to restart chemotherapy in February after discussions with her oncologist.
