Prof Ian Young is encouraging the public to get a jab for Covid-19 as soon as possible.

Mr Prentice, speaking to BBC News NI, described the moment he was taken to intensive care.

"Although I was making good headway at that stage, they needed to act fast for my health and my wellbeing and so on.

"They needed to get me to an ICU unit and fast.

"I was in an out of consciousness in that ICU unit. Basically lying on my back for four days and four nights.

"A lot of time to think about a lot of things, a lot of time to pray."

He said the seriousness of the situation was reflected when he asked a doctor if he was going to die and they replied they would get him the "best help we can possibly get you".

I got my first COVID vaccine on February 10th and my 6 month follow up CT was the 17th. I had heard the same as you did, but my scan and labs were all clear and fine. Maybe ask your oncologist what he/she thinks?
