CLL Advocates Network Statement
Much of the information about COVID-19 does not address the concerns of people with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL). With this statement, we wish to fill this gap and provide extra advice for CLL patients.
CLL patients – whether treated or not, young or old – are immune depressed. Treatment can add to the immune deficiency. In view of the foregoing, CLL patients are therefore at high risk of getting COVID-19 and having more severe symptoms than the general population. Therefore, CLL patients should remain especially vigilant.
The latest version (V6 dd. 6 January 2021) includes a new section on COVID-19 vaccination! It is currently available in English, French, Spanish, German, Greek, Danish, and Kiswahili! Further languages will follow in due course!
Last updated 13 January 2021 – V6 – includes new section on COVID-19 vaccination!
