JOINT STATEMENT ON THE COVID-19 VACCINATION OF PATIENTS WITH CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE IN MALAYSIA

KUALA LUMPUR, 18 February 2021: We view with great concern the rising prevalence of Covid-19 in the country over past few weeks. We are particularly concerned on the impact of Covid-19 infection in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) especially those with CKD stage 5 who are receiving treatment with dialysis or kidney transplantation. Experience worldwide have shown this group of patients are very vulnerable to serious complications of Covid-19 infection and there is a significant mortality amongst those infected. Similarly, there is increased risk of healthcare workers (HCW) attending to these patients acquiring this infection due to frequent encounters.

There are now about 50,000 patients living on dialysis or have a functioning kidney transplant in the country, the vast majority of whom are on haemodialysis (HD).  These patients have impaired immunity either inherently from their illness or induced by medications, making them eminently vulnerable to complications should they be infected with SARS Cov-2 virus.
