  • See our post (from Lymphoma Canada) providing links to statements from all Canadian provinces and territories on their recommendations for Covid vaccines for Lymphoma patients.  Go right to the source for your province / territory!

  • NCT04624906, the only Canadian trial specifically for WM patients, a.k.a. the BRAWM trial led by Dr. Berinstein, is now accepting patients not just at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, but also at the Vancouver General Hospital, the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, and The Ottawa Hospital.

  • The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (the US part of the organization) has reported data from more than 1,400 blood cancer patients regarding their ability to produce antibodies against Covid-19.  The title says it all — “Get Vaccinated, Act Unvaccinated”!  See https://lls.org/who-we-are/covid-19-vaccines-faq-patients-and-caregivers for more information, and in particular, see the last part for excellent FAQs from vaccinated blood cancer patients.
