Covid-19 Vaccines and Breast Cancer: Ask the experts
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic increases the burden of distress that breast cancer patients already experience due to their condition and raise questions that most of the time remain unanswered.
Protection of cancer patients through vaccination against COVID-19 must be a public health priority and there is a urgent need for information on the topic.
To provide support to breast cancer patients, with a special focus on advanced/metastatic breast cancer patients, the ABC Global Alliance has brought together a multidisciplinary panel of experts who will answer questions posed by patients themselves on issues related to COVID-19 vaccination in cancer patients.
We invite you to submit your question(s) live during the event. A committee of patient advocates will compile and revise the questions received and put them forward to the expert panel. Don’t miss this opportunity to have your doubts clarified and your questions answered.
