Covid Vaccination While On Chemo

Covid Vaccination While On Chemo

I have been told not to get the covid vaccination while getting my Chemo treatment. Anyone getting the same instructions? What happens if I do take it?

A MyLymphomaTeam Member

I checked with my oncologist before I had my vaccine and he said to go ahead and have it. I had both shots with no side effects. I was on CHEMO at the time. You sure don’t want to catch COVID.

I Have Follicular NHL, Completed Chemo And Am In Remission. Just Recently Diagnosed With Covid.

After chemo, I had two sessions of Rituxan before my doctor stopped that treatment due to extreamly low white blood cell counts. I had one infusion of Immune globulin before contracting Covid. Even though I'm on Paxlovid (anti-viral), I'm uncertain what to expect in recovery since my immune system is so compromised. I'm sure other Lymphoma patients have contracted Covid and want to know what to expect in recovery with a compromised immune system.

Flu Vaccines Necessary For Surrounding Family & Friends?

Flu Vaccines Necessary For Surrounding Family & Friends?

I've heard anyone in my immediate family or friends must receive the flu vaccine to be around me safely.
Is this true? My son & his family do not receive this vaccine by choice & Should I avoid contact even though I have had the flu shot?

I had flu shot. I think it’s a good idea. Do not need leukemia PLUS the flu

I have large B cell lymphoma (NHL). It seems like chemo is the most recommended treatment. However, I am having a very hard time accepting that chemo is the “best.”

Does Anyone Have Experience With MALT Lymphoma With Lung Tumors?

I was just diagnosed after 3 years of trying to find answers for lung masses and symptoms. I'm having trouble finding information on MALT with lung masses.

I'm wondering about staging and treatment. Any sharing of experiences would be appreciated.

Thank you!
