Vaccination of Patients With Haematological Malignancies Who did not Have Transplantations: Guidelines from the 2017 European Conference on Infections in Leukemia (ECIL 7)

This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with hematological malignancies who have not had a hematopoietic cell transplantation. The guideline examines the use of vaccinations as a means to prevent infections (e.g. influenza and invasive pneumococcal disease) in this patient population. Additional outcomes of interest include decreasing the severity of acquired infections, avoiding hospitalisations, and improving survival.
