Get the facts on all things cancer and COVID-19

Facing cancer is scary, complex and stressful – there are so many unknowns. COVID-19 further complicates things – it adds to the questions needing answers.

That's why Cancer Council Victoria has launched its 'Get Factsinated' campaign to support people affected by cancer to ‘Get the facts on all things cancer and COVID-19’. 

Did you know?

  • None of the vaccines contain the live virus, so they cannot give you COVID-19.
  • While these vaccines have been developed faster than ever before, none of the steps in safely testing have been skipped.
  • People with cancer who contract COVID-19 are twice as likely to have severe symptoms and require hospital treatment.
  • A third vaccine dose is recommended for immunocompromised people aged 12 and over.

If you or someone close to you has cancer, Get Factsinated. Get the facts on all things cancer and COVID-19. Call Cancer Council’s Information and Support line on 13 11 20 or visit www.cancervic.org.au for  answers to the most common questions.
