Bronchiectasis & Covid vaccination

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, does anyone know if having Bronchiectasis puts you in the ' higher risk ' group when the vaccinations are allocated ? is it classified as a Chronic disease ? my GP didn't seem sure ?

    my understanding ( which could be faulty!) is if we have had hospital treatment for bronchiectasis with the past year, then we get elevated higher up the list


    like me

    we have not seen inside a hospital for a few years, then we are on the same level as everyone else


    dont know if England is the same as Scotland Wales or N Ireland though???

    i phoned my local "british lung foundation" helpline
