About 10% of all cancers are hereditary. Genetic testing is available to help identify the risk of certain types of cancer for you and your family. Both women and men can inherit genetic mutations that increase their risk of breast cancer, the most important being BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. Genetic testing can help those with genetic mutations prepare and reduce their risk of developing breast cancer. To learn more about genetic testing and if it’s right for you and your family, talk with your doctor.

Additional Dose of mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine for Patients Who Are Immunocompromised | CDC

Effective August 13, 2021, CDC recommends that people who are moderately to severely immunocompromised receive an additional dose of an mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) at least 28 days after the completion of the initial mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series. Available data show that these people don’t always build adequate levels of protection after an initial 2-dose primary mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series. The data also show that they may benefit from receiving an additional dose of an mRNA vaccine to develop as much protection as possible against COVID-19.

Currently, CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people receive an additional dose. This includes people who have:

• Active treatment for solid tumor and hematologic malignancies.
• Receipt of solid-organ transplant and taking immunosuppressive therapy.
• Receipt of CAR-T-cell or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (within 2 years of transplantation or taking immunosuppression therapy).
• Moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency (e.g., DiGeorge syndrome, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome).
• Advanced or untreated HIV infection.
• Active treatment with high-dose corticosteroids (i.e., ≥20mg prednisone or equivalent per day), alkylating agents, antimetabolites, transplant-related immunosuppressive drugs, cancer chemotherapeutic agents classified as severely immunosuppressive, tumor-necrosis (TNF) blockers, and other biologic agents that are immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory.

https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/immunocompromised-patients.html

• Patients will “self- attest” that they meet the above criteria and will NOT need a physician letter or prescription for the booster vaccine.
• Find a COVID-19 Vaccine: Search vaccines.gov, text your ZIP code to 438829, or call 1-800-232-0233 to find locations near you.
• Check your local pharmacy’s website to see if vaccination walk-ins or appointments are available.
• Contact your state or local health department for more information.
• Check with facility that gave you your original COVID vaccine for availability .
