DKMS (globally) has decided to assess and document donors’ Coronavirus immunity status for all patient-related request (CT/VT, HAC, WU,…).
DKMS considers this a valuable information for donor selection and transplantation schedule. Therefore, all transplant centers will actively be notified if:
Donor is fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2, including type of vaccine
Donor is scheduled for 1st or final SARS-CoV-2 vaccine dose, including date and type of vaccine
Donor has fully recovered from confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection within the past 6 months.
In addition, our DKMS CT departments offer to contact any donor and assess the SARS-CoV-2 vaccination status (again) on request of a TC, if this could have impact on final donor selection and schedule.
Please note that we expect the vast majority of our European (DE, PL and UK) and Chilean donors to be fully vaccinated after this summer.
