Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Fact Sheet for Vaccine Recipients
This fact sheet gives basic information only. It must not take the place of medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always talk to a health care professional about any health concerns you have before you make any changes to your diet, lifestyle or treatment.
The Transplant Medication Information Teaching Tool (TMITT)
This program will review what you need to know about medications after transplant. This includes why you need to take medications after a transplant, how to make sure you take the right dose of your medications, and how to manage your medications safely and effectively at home.
As COVID-19 cases in the community increase, we are recommending that all transplant patients get:
The vaccines can be given through your primary care provider or, in some cases, at your local pharmacy. Please continue with strict precautions, including masking and avoiding large gatherings when possible. If you do become ill with either COVID-19 or the flu, please contact your transplant care team for potential treatment options.
Please note: Patients need to wait at least 6 months from their last COVID-19 vaccine or last COVID-19 infection before receiving another dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
For patients 60 years and older, you may also consider the RSV vaccine, the Trillium Drug Program does not cover it and the out-of-pocket fee is $250. If you would like to receive the RSV vaccine, please request a prescription from your primary care provider.
