Immunity after chemotherapy


Re: Immunity after chemotherapy

Hello susieA 

Thanks for posting. 

Blood counts like the full blood count usually return to normal or near normal two or three weeks after the last chemotherapy treatment. 

As you had your last chemo two weeks, then your immune system has hopefully recovered or will do soon. The COVID-19 vaccines you have had should still be providing you with immunity against coronavirus. 

You might be interested in the range of free services we offer 

Do call our Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks. The number is 0808 800 6000, (Relay UK - prefix 18001). 

If you would like a nurse to call you do complete this form. Ticking the box agreeing to a call back.   

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am - 1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.  

We will be closed on Monday 29 August due to the bank holiday. 

Best wishes

Immunity after chemotherapy

I finished chemotherapy two weeks ago and am wondering how long it takes for your body to revert to normal levels of white cells for fighting infections and whether I still have some immunity from my (4) covid jabs.
