Vaccination Policy Announcement


Protecting the health and safety of the entire blood cancer community is our priority at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC). As each province loosens restrictions for businesses and public spaces, we are taking an added step to further support the safety of individuals with a blood cancer, their family members, healthcare professionals, and our supporters with a new vaccination policy.

As of November 1, 2021, a mandatory nationwide proof of vaccination is required for all LLSC employees, volunteers, and visitors needing to meet in-person at any one of our LLSC offices. In cases where proof of full vaccination of a Health Canada-approved COVID-19 vaccine is not possible, we will conduct business virtually. While you meet in-person with one of our volunteers or staff, local public health measures will also be followed including wearing face masks and keeping physical distance in all settings. As we head into the next phase of the pandemic, we will continue to work with infectious disease specialists and cancer care experts to bring the blood cancer community the information they need to stay healthy and informed.

Visit our COVID-19 Resource Centre for our vaccination policy FAQs and tools to help you or someone you know who is facing a blood cancer during the pandemic.
