Ask the Doctor Question:
When receiving the third vaccine, should a CLL patient get the full or half dose of Moderna?
Answer: The CDC guidance for the immunocompromised at this time is to receive the same vaccine again (from the same manufacturer and the same previous dosage). So please request the full dosage.
