At the current time, not enough is known about the various COVID-19 vaccines regarding their safety and effectiveness for people with blood cancer. Whilst people with blood cancer are amongst the most clinically extremely vulnerable to the risk of severe illness from COVID-19, it is not clear how safe or effective the vaccines may be for them, or how their access to any vaccines will be prioritised.
Please be assured that we are working closely with our medical advisory panel, and our colleagues across blood cancer and other cancer charity groups, to ensure that the needs of people with blood cancer are represented, and the safety and effectiveness of the various vaccines are considered.
The following is the latest information on COVID-19 vaccines from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).
When we know more about the situation for people with lymphoma, we will publish further information.
