COVID-19 Vaccine

We highly recommend you take your first available opportunity to get the vaccine. This may be from your local health department, primary care provider or hospital system.

If you have cancer or are on chemotherapy, our physicians recommend that you get the COVID-19 vaccine except under the following circumstances:

  • If you have had a bone marrow transplant in the last 4 months
  • If you have had a positive COVID-19 infection and received convalescent plasma or COVID-19 directed antibody in the last 90 days
  • If you have received any other vaccine in the last 14 days
  • Please discuss with your physician if you have an autoimmune disorder
  • Please discuss with your OB if you are pregnant
  • Please discuss with your physician if you have had a severe reaction to injectable medications or vaccines in the past
