CWRU Medicine shares findings of study about vaccinated patients with cancer

Breakthrough COVID dangerous for vaccinated cancer patients

WebMD: New research from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine finds vaccinated patients with cancer are more likely than those without cancer to contract a breakthrough COVID-19 infection, which puts them at a much higher risk for hospitalization and death. “These results emphasize the need for patients with cancer to maintain mitigation practice, especially with the emergence of different virus variants and the waning immunity of vaccines,” the study authors wrote.
