Which COVID-19 vaccine is best for cancer patients?

With three COVID-19 vaccines now authorized for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you might be wondering which vaccine is best for current and former cancer patients. After reviewing all available data, MD Anderson medical experts agree that all three vaccines are safe and recommended for cancer patients.

So, should you take Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine (J&J), which requires only one dose, if that’s what’s available? Or should you wait for one of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, which both require two doses, spaced 21 and 28 days apart, respectively?

According to our experts, the answer is clear: “Don’t pass up an opportunity to get the vaccine, no matter which one it is,” says Anita Ying, M.D., vice president of Ambulatory Medical Operations. “The best COVID-19 vaccine to get is the first one available to you.”



Some more links:

And survivors, those not undergoing active cancer treatment. Are there any reasons they shouldn’t get vaccinated?

I think that depends on when you ask the question. How much vaccine do you have [available]? If you have unlimited amounts, then everybody should get vaccinated. But when you get into vaccine allocation issues, that’s when it gets challenging.

But there’s no question that many cancer survivors have immunologic deficiencies, so I see many of them as being at high risk. Cancer survivors are also people who tend to be older and have other comorbidities—heart disease, kidney or lung dysfunction—so they’re going to have other reasons that will put them at risk for developing severe COVID-19, and those are all reasons for them to get vaccinated.

I am currently under AC-T chemo treatment.  I received my 2nd dose of Moderna vaccine last week.  My doctor approved the vaccine for me and I am glad I got it. As far as side effects, they were manageable with Tylenol and some rest. I think the benefits of the vaccine greatly outweigh the concerns of side effects.  However, it is important that we as the patients of breast cancer consult our doctors before we get the vaccine.  And after getting the vaccine, be ready to take rest, if needed, especially, after the second dose.  If any side effects persist or intensify, consult your doctor. I am just writing about my experience as a patient.  I am not a doctor or medical professional.
