IMF Advocates for Cancer Patient Vaccine Prioritization
On January 26, 2021, the International Myeloma Foundation led a group of cancer advocacy organizations in sending a letter to states regarding COVID-19 vaccine prioritization for cancer patients. Because many cancer patients are especially vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19, we want to ensure that patients are prioritized above the general public. The IMF also joined in additional group efforts and sent a letter advocating for patients to the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which you can access at the button below.

You can also view more about vaccine recommendations for myeloma patients here, and view the letters here.
