FAQs about COVID-19 Vaccines for People Affected by Cancer

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about COVID-19 vaccines for people affected by cancer

Cancer Australia has released Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) translated into 10 languages specifically for people affected by cancer.

People with cancer are more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 and are at an increased risk of more severe infection. The latest international evidence reassuringly shows that for many people affected by cancer, getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect them, their family and their community against COVID-19.

FAQs have been developed by Cancer Australia based on input and queries from the cancer community. The FAQs have now been translated into the 10 most commonly-spoken languages: Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Greek, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
