Many families have expressed concerns about the impact coronavirus will have on their immunosuppressed children. There are a number of studies currently taking place to try and gather this data to enable professionals to give you more informed advice.
This study will consist of a weekly questionnaire that takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
If you or your child is less than 18 years old and has a condition that makes them more vulnerable to infections or is on drugs that affect the immune system and would like to take part in this study please follow the link below for further information.
