I’m a CLL patient and have had both initial doses of Moderna, though was extremely ill after 2nd dose. Should I get booster?

Answer: Talk with your treating CLL physician first, but CLL Society is in support of those with CLL getting a third booster dose. It has been recommended by the CDC since late August for all immunocompromised individuals to get one due to the data that came out at that time from multiple studies indicating there was a benefit. Here is a great article that we put up on the website regarding several of the most common questions we were receiving from our community regarding the boosters.
