According to a new study, coronavirus vaccines offer less protection for cancer patients than the general population and their effectiveness wears off faster.

This effect is more pronounced in patients with the blood cancers lymphoma and leukemia, and those who have recently received radiation or chemotherapy, according to the study published in the journal Lancet Oncology found.

Although it is known that the coronavirus poses a greater risk of hospitalization and death for cancer patients, scientists say there has been a lack of real-world research on how effective vaccines are at preventing breakthrough infections in these patients and how quickly their protection wears off.
