Sabine Haggenburg

January 6, 2022

During the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition, Know AML spoke with Sabine Haggenburg, Amsterdam UMC, Amsterdam, NL. We asked, Should COVID-19 vaccination be postponed after acute myeloid leukemia therapy?

Haggenburg begins by discussing COVID-19 risks to acute myeloid leukemia patients, and the responses to vaccinations that have been observed so far. However, she highlights that vaccination does not protect patients taking hypomethylating agents (HMAs), such as azacitidine and decitabine.
