CMS has announced that the federally supported website that makes it easier for individuals to access COVID-19 vaccines is now live. Vaccines.gov – powered by the trusted VaccineFinder brand – is available in English and Spanish, with high accessibility standard, and will help connect Americans with locations offering vaccines near them. In addition to the website, people in the U.S. are also now able to utilize a text message service, available in both English and Spanish.

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Survey on COVID-19 in Oncology Registry (ASCO Registry) aims to help the cancer community learn more about the patterns of symptoms and severity of COVID-19 among patients with cancer, as well as, how COVID-19 is impacting the delivery of cancer care and patient outcomes. ASCO will deliver periodic reports with key findings so that the oncology community has real-time information to help inform treatment approaches for patients with cancer who have a confirmed COVID-19 infection. The reports will allow practices to easily and confidentially share information on COVID-19 infections among their patients.
