Crucial information for multicultural communities about COVID-19 vaccines and cancer
Your questions about COVID-19 vaccines and cancer answered in your language
To support multicultural communities with evidence-based information about COVID-19 vaccines and cancer, Cancer Australia has released Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) translated into 10 languages specifically for people affected by cancer.
These languages are: Arabic, Chinese –Simplified, Chinese –Traditional, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
People with cancer are more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19 and are at an increased risk of more severe infection. The latest international evidence reassuringly shows that for many people affected by cancer, getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect them, their family and their community against COVID-19.
The FAQs address when and where people with cancer can get vaccinated; the safety, effectiveness, and any risks of the vaccines; if the vaccine may impact their cancer treatment; and how information will be collected about the vaccines in people affected by cancer.
