CDC Graphic Guidance on Choosing Safer Activities During the COVID-19 Pandemic: How it Applies to CLL Patients

In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge. All articles and interviews are informational only, should never be considered medical advice, and should never be acted on without review with your health care team.

This simple CDC graphic may answer many of your questions about what is probably safe and what is not during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have CLL, put yourself in with those who are unvaccinated on the left. CLL Society (not the CDC) added the speech bubble. Guidance may change as we learn more. But for now, most CLL experts are recommending that their immunized chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients act as if they are not protected against COVID-19. This is not meant as medical advice but is CLL Society guidance for now.

CLL Society - COVID-19

When appropriate, the CLL Society will be posting updates and background information on the present Coronavirus pandemic focusing on reliable primary sources of information and avoiding most of the news that is not directly from reliable medical experts or government and world health agencies.
