COVID-19 Vaccine Recommendation:
NRG Oncology defers to local institutional guidelines. In the absence of institutional guidelines, NRG Oncology recommends following current clinical practice guidelines from ASCO, ACS or NCCN. There are not specific contraindications to receiving COVID-19 vaccine on current NRG Oncology studies.
We understand that as a patient or family member of a patient participating in – or considering participating in, a research study may have questions related to your care and/or ability to complete the requirements of the research study given the current pandemic. See also the information linked below for cancer patients from the National Cancer Institute.
Medical facilities are instituting changes in how they operate in response to local risk, local or state requirements, and types of essential activities carried out at that particular facility. You should always check in if you have questions or concerns, according to what your research physician or other representative of your medical facility has directed you to do.
