COVID-19 and lymphoma

At Lymphoma Action, we've brought together the latest information about COVID-19 and how it affects people with lymphoma. This information comes from authoritative sources, including the UK government, NICE and the NHS, and is frequently updated to reflect the latest guidance. 

If you have symptoms of lymphoma or signs of infection, please contact your GP surgery or your clinical team. It is important that you don't ignore symptoms that could be serious.

The news regarding the progress made in the development of a vaccine for COVID-19 is certainly encouraging, and we will provide updates on what this means for people affected by lymphoma as developments continue to unfold. In the meantime, we reiterate the importance of following the latest Government guidance in preventing the spread of COVID-19, and for protecting those who are considered at high risk of severe illness from the virus, including people affected by lymphoma.
