AKA’s Role with Respect to COVID 19 Vaccination

AKA will not be administering the COVID 19 vaccine. We recommend that our patients contact either (1) their primary care physician, (2) their outpatient dialysis clinic, or (3) the Transplant Center where they received their transplant to keep informed of when and where they will be referring their patients for the COVID 19 vaccine.

Upon request, the physicians of AKA will write a letter validating that an individual patient is at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 if the requesting patient is (1) an active patient of AKA and (2) has a condition that meets the CDC’s “at increased risk” criteria including a patient with one or more of the following:

  • Solid organ transplant (kidney, liver, pancreas, or combined kidney/pancreas or kidney/liver transplant)
  • End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD or ESRD)
  • CKD stages 3 through 5
  • Kidney disease that is being treated with immunosuppressive therapy
  • Prednisone, prednisolone, methylprednisolone, cyclosporine (Neoral), tacrolimus (Prograf or Envarsus), cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan), mycophenolate mofetil, mycophenolate sodium, sirolimus, rituximab (Rituxan or Truxima), etc.
