CDTRP September 28 Special Webinar: Third dose of COVID-19 Vaccination in Solid Organ Transplant Recipients
Are you wondering about the effects of the COVID-19 third booster vaccine on immunocompromised people?
The standard two-dose vaccine immunization may provide limited immunity against COVID-19 disease for organ transplant recipients. To help increase immunity, boosters of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are now being offered to immunocompromised organ transplant recipients in many parts of Canada. During this special CDTRP webinar on September 28 at 5 pm EST, Dr. Dima Kabbani from the University of Alberta will discuss the latest research and what the transplant community should know about third doses. A Q & A will follow the presentation. You can ask your questions in English, French or Spanish.
Pre-registration is required for this free webinar.
