At this time, the COVID-19 vaccine is not being offered to the general public, including cancer patients. We know the COVID-19 vaccine is safe for the general public; however, there may be special considerations for cancer patients, especially those who have a weakened immune system or those who are on active anticancer treatment.
CancerCare Manitoba is actively working with Manitoba’s Vaccine Implementation Task Force to review evidence from around the world on using the COVID-19 vaccine for cancer patients. More information is needed to decide the best time to provide this vaccine to cancer patients depending on where you are in your cancer journey.
CancerCare Manitoba will provide updates as information becomes available. Please continue to check our website.
