This webinar aims to debunk myths surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine for cancer patients, and will explore the key learnings for primary care professionals.

It will cover a number of questions, including:

  • Can patients on cancer treatment have the vaccine? Are there any exceptions?
  • Does it matter when they have the vaccine in their treatment cycle? Do they need to be vaccinated prior to starting treatment?
  • When will cancer patients get the vaccine? Which group are they in?
  • Is either vaccine preferable?

There will also be an opportunity to submit questions to speakers throughout this webinar.
