Mother of disabled 13 year old says Vaccine will let him experience life

Mother of disabled 13-year-old says: ‘Vaccine will let him experience life’

Donna Quinn’s son Logan has serious respiratory problems and a rare neurological condition

The mother of a profoundly disabled 13-year-old has said she “can’t make him bulletproof” but getting him vaccinated will let him “live and experience life”.

Donna Quinn’s son Logan has serious respiratory problems and a rare neurological condition. He is one of around 4,000 children in Scotland with neuro-disabilities and other conditions to be offered a Covid-19 vaccine under new guidance.

Earlier this month, the Scottish Government announced children aged 12-17 with certain conditions would be offered a Pfizer vaccine in line with recommendations from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

Ms Quinn said: “We’ve done as much as we can, I can’t make him bulletproof, but I can just do as much as I can to move forward and start living again.

“He’s about to be 14 next week and I’ve had to have faith in science and medical experts for him to be alive today.

“I’ve nearly lost Logan on so many occasions. It was for him to live and experience life and be with friends and family.”
