Am I covered for travel in the Coronavirus pandemic?

Tips for travelling with lymphoma
Travel precautions to bear in mind
- People with active lymphoma may be more prone to certain infections because of the effect of the disease upon their immune system. This is particularly true if you are currently receiving chemotherapy, if you take steroids, or if you’ve had your spleen removed. Book an appointment with your GP or healthcare provider to discuss the best time to go on holiday to fit with any treatment you may be having, as well as any medical issues such as medication.
Be cautious with vaccinations
Your GP or travel clinic should be well aware of which vaccines are safe for people with lymphoma. Some vaccines are not recommended for patients with lymphoma because they contain live organisms (a small considerably weakened dose of the living organism against which immunisation is intended). Live vaccines include:
- Live polio vaccine
- Live (oral) typhoid
- Yellow Fever and Japanese B encephalitis
- If you’re still receiving chemotherapy treatment or any other medications for lymphoma, you should check with your doctor to ensure anti-malaria tablets won’t interact with any of your current treatments.
- If you’re still receiving chemotherapy treatment or any other medications for your lymphoma or leukaemia, you should check with your doctor to ensure that that anti-malaria tablets would not result in bad interactions with any of your current treatments.
- Bring enough medication for your entire trip, plus extra in case you are delayed. Some medications are not readily available in other countries, so it is worthwhile to check out beforehand what you should do if your supply gets low. Keep all medications in their original containers with labels. Prescription bottles should have your name and the name and dosage of the drug clearly indicated.
- You may consider carrying a note from your doctor with a list of your required medications on it to prove that you need them. This is especially important for pain medications, anti-depressants, and stimulants that may be illegal in other countries. Put cotton balls in your pill bottles to prevent pill damage during transport.
Get plenty of rest
- Make sure that you schedule in some rest time every couple of hours so that you don’t get run down. This regular “down time” will help to prevent you from missing out on activities later in the long run.
