Coronavirus help and advice
We are aware that the COVID-19 pandemic is a time of concern for everyone, especially if you have or are caring for someone with cystic fibrosis. This is a developing situation, and we are working with a panel of experts to answer some of the questions our community have been asking. We will continue to update our website with the latest information. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, or you need immediate support, please contact our Helpline.

COVID-19 treatments and cystic fibrosis
This page contains information about the latest treatments for COVID-19 that some people with cystic fibrosis may be eligible for if they test positive for COVID-19 on a PCR test. It also contains information about a clinical study open to over 18s with CF to test the effectiveness of antiviral treatment for COVID-19 infection.
The COVID-19 vaccine is a safe and effective way to limit your risk of COVID-19. Here you can find information about COVID-19 vaccination for children and adults with cystic fibrosis and for parents/carers.

What is CF?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,800 people in the UK. You are born with CF and cannot catch it later in life, but one in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes it, usually without knowing.
Research we fund
The Trust is committed to funding and supporting cutting-edge research to find new and better treatments for cystic fibrosis.

We provide free, high-quality information and support to help people with CF live a life unlimited.
