ALERT CONTENT PLACEHOLDER

Ajmera Transplant Centre's guidance regarding COVID-19:

  • COVID cases continue to spread in the community, causing severe disease particularly in the unvaccinated and immunocompromised.
  • We continue to see a large number of COVID cases in transplant recipients at our Centre.
  • Although many restrictions have lifted across Canada, we are asking all transplant patients to continue with strict precautions to minimize the risk of contracting COVID-19. Wear a mask when going out, gather only in small groups and with fully vaccinated people. We currently advise against travel, when possible.
  • If you are an Essential Care Partner (ECP) visiting a patient at our Centre, we kindly remind you that mask-wearing continues to be mandatory as we must continue to protect our patients.
    Read more in our letter to ECPs      
    Please visit UHN's COVID-19 section for information before coming to the hospital.
  • All patients should have received three doses of vaccine as their primary series. If you have not received a third dose, you should receive it immediately.
  • Guidance has been updated to allow transplant patients to receive booster shots (4th or 5th dose) 3 months after their previous dose.
  • If you are a transplant patient at UHN, and require a letter confirming your patient status to receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster dose, please submit your request to transplantvaccine@uhn.ca.
  • An antiviral oral medication called Paxlovid is available in Canada for certain groups. This drug can cause severe interactions with some transplant medications. Please, do not take Paxlovid without speaking to your transplant care team at our Centre first.
  • If you are a transplant recipient, you may be eligible to receive a monoclonal antibody medication called Evusheld, to help prevent COVID infection. Please contact your transplant coordinator for more information.
  • Here is an FAQ       with more information about Evusheld.

For information about safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines and other resources, please visit the Canadian Society for Transplantation COVID-19 Resources page.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to your Transplant Coordinator for information and support, and visit the Transplant Psychosocial Team page for more resources.​​
