I Would Like To Know How Long After A Stem Cell Transplant You Receive Your Immunization Shots?

With the exception of the EvuSheld Covid Antibody treatment (which is not a vaccine), vaccinations can start between 4 and 6 months after transplant. It takes up to 2 years to become fully vaccinated as you have to repeat all vaccines you have had since childhood. I became a grandad recently and they told me I'd be pretty much on the same schedule as the baby!

They do prioritize vaccinations, starting with the most active (like Covid) through to those vaccines for which the is less risk nowadays. They did give me a list and I'll try and find it and publish it here.
