    Will there be ASTCT guidance on administering the COVID-19 vaccine to HCT recipients?  Specifically if to give prior to day 100, even if patient unlikely to respond, vs wait?

    Thank you for asking Jennifer. I also think it would be great to know ASTCT's position on how to use COVID vaccines in HCT patients...

    See this link for ASH-ASTCT guidance on COVID vaccination for BMT (and other immunocompromised) patients. They are a bit general for now since details of specific vaccines are not available, but are a good starting point.

    Curious if other centers have yet adopted a plan in context of timeline for COVID-19 vaccination for auto, allo and CAR-T recipients?  thanks in advance
