David Pinato, MD, MRes, PhD, Imperial College London, London, UK, discusses his presentation on the OnCovid study which is investigating the outcomes of patients with cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic. Data from over 3,000 patients has been analyzed in the study. The study has reported an increased mortality rate in cancer patients in the UK, associated with age and fraility. Dr Pinato recommends that cancer patients receive the COVID-19 vaccine, commenting on the potential impacts of certain hematological malignancies on vaccine efficiency.
