I'm signing this petition because we need more awareness of how Covid19 affects G6PD individuals as well as treatments being given for treating Covid19 to G6PD people.

I’m signing because my son found out he has G6PD at the age of 18. I’m concerned that during the Covid pandemic, research and treatment has not been as tailored to specific populations more susceptible to severe symptoms as should have been.

Thanks for adding your voice.

As someone who only found out at about 40 years old that I have G6PD and that it was affecting my health, I think it is critical that we do more research into this condition and how it affects our risk from diseases like COVID.

I wear a MedicAlert bracelet because I have had adverse affects to NSAIDS, aspirin and some antibiotics. Now I am wondering about my own safety for early June when I am scheduled for my first dose of Astra Zeneca.

It's a much needed petition for WHO to take all necessary measures so that the G6PD deficient population is well protected against any adverse effects of Covid-19 and the resultant vaccinations.

My Son and Daughter were hospitalised from G6pd after eating Broad Beans.( my son receiving a blood transfusion) I never knew I was G6PD. Here is Australia, no one seems to know much about this condition let alone how we will stand up to COVID 19. I’m scared to get any vaccines as blood clotting is happening so often. How will it react with our blood? All questions I’m sure all G6PD people in the community worry about I’m sure.

I have G6PD Deficiency and had COVID19 a year ago and the hospital that I was hospitalized at was clueless as to a safe and effective treatment plan for me. The hematologist kept trying to prescribe me well known contraindicated medications and if I wasn't as educated as I am about G6PD Deficiency, my outcome would have been worst.
