Note from the author
Australia Day 2017, when I was recognised with an Order of Australia award, was a bitter-sweet moment, as the day before, I had received my first dose of chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. After eight months off work, I too became a ‘cancer survivor’. My treatment team didn’t talk to me about vaccinations, and I suspect you may be in the same situation. In 2020 my nephew, a general practitioner, called me and said I needed to be vaccinated for shingles, pneumonia, and whooping cough, especially because of my previous cancer treatment. I started doing my own research to help my patients and me.
