COVID Vaccine Gives Less Protection for Some Cancer Patients
Millions of people across the United States have begun receiving their COVID-19 vaccines, and restrictions are lifting in many public spaces such as restaurants and bars.

However, a new study reports that the COVID-19 vaccine may not sufficiently protect patients with compromised or weakened immune systems. The study results suggest that people with cancer or who are undergoing cancer treatment may still be highly vulnerable to COVID-19 even after their vaccination. Researchers published their findings earlier this m...
