Resumen

SILVARINO, Ricardo et al. Recommendations for the SARS-CoV-2 vaccination of patients with kidney disease and transplant recipients. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2021, vol.37, n.2, e901.  Epub 01-Jun-2021. ISSN 0303-3295.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29193/rmu.37.2.11.

The objective of this document containing recommendations is to provide guidelines for nephrologists and non-nephrologists who assist patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) at all stages of the disease on the vaccination process against SARS-CoV-2. As a consequence of the current epidemiological situation and the timing of the COVID-19 vaccine development -for available vaccines- there is no solid evidence, and thus, recommendations are not accompanied by the due medical proof. The need to prioritize vaccination in this group of patients is based on the increased risk of acquiring the SARS-CoV-2 infection, developing the COVID-19 disease with greater severity and presenting higher mortality rates than the general population. The recommendations are organized by groups of patients, considering patients with non-dialytic CKD, dialysis and kidney transplantation, and patients under immunosuppressive treatment.
