@jeff79922– Welcome Jeff to Mayo Clinic Connect. We have a very active Transplant group.

https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/transplants/ Please meet @danab, @gingerw, and @rosemarya who are mentors for Mayo Connect Transplant group.

Meanwhile please watch the video below about Vaccines and Transplant patients. Dr. Poland is superb.

@keggebraaten :

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope those of you on the east coast are braving the snow. Here in MN, we just don't have anything to discuss in terms of the weather. It's an unusual December for sure.

We wanted to be sure you all saw the recent update from Dr. Poland. If you don't know, Dr. Poland is an infectious disease expert, and he is the head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group. Since the beginning of the pandemic, he has been posting many videos a week with Q&A information about the pandemic, the virus, the safety measures, and now, the vaccine.

In this recent video, around minute 16:00 – 18:00, Dr. Poland talks about vaccine-related to transplant patients. We thought you all might like to hear this information, but please remember, the information about COVID is changing so quickly. The videos we post today could be quickly outdated with the release of new information. And also please remember, you should consult the transplant teams caring for YOU before you embark on any decisions to receive, or not receive, the new vaccines.

We will continue to update you with new information as it becomes available to us. In the meantime, make sure to get your COVID information from a trusted source, such as the CDC or your local health department or your transplant physicians. Take care!
