NCCN recognizes the rapidly changing medical information relating to COVID-19 in the cancer care spectrum, but understands that a forum for sharing best practices and specific institutional responses may be helpful to others. Therefore, we are expeditiously providing documents and recommendations developed by NCCN Member Institutions or Guideline Panels as resources for oncology care providers. These resources have not been developed or reviewed by the standard NCCN processes, and are provided for informational purposes only. We will post more resources as they become available. Please check back for additional updates.
NCCN has an Advisory Committee on COVID-19 Vaccination and Pre-exposure Prophylaxis including top hematology and oncology experts with particular expertise in infectious diseases, vaccination development, and medical ethics. This committee has established recommendations that can help cancer care providers make informed decisions on how to protect their patients from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, based on the latest evidence plus expert consensus. This information is being continually updated as more options become available.
