The state has developed a new website (myturn.ca.gov) that will enable residents to determine their eligibility to be vaccinated and to sign up to be notified when they do become eligible, so they can then schedule an appointment. The new site also provides a mechanism to easily track vaccination data and enables providers to automatically share data on vaccines received and administered with the state.

As the U.S. continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, ASCO strongly encourages practices to participate in the ASCO Survey on COVID-19 in Oncology Registry (ASCO Registry) to help examine the evidence on the effect of COVID-19 on patients with cancer. The ASCO Registry collects baseline and longitudinal data on patients with cancer and COVID-19 and plans to deliver periodic reports with key findings that can influence future care. Thanks to support from Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation, ASCO provides payments (both for start-up and for each patient entered) to help cover expenses involved in participating.
