SARS-CoV-2 infection/COVID-19 is especially challenging to manage in individuals who are immunocompromised, including transplant recipients, those with hematologic malignancies, older patients and recipients of corticosteroids, immunosuppressives or anti-CD20 agents, among others. These patients are at higher risk of experiencing severe COVID-19, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to be hospitalised and die. Prevention of COVID-19 infection in individuals who are immunocompromised is critical to protecting their health.
