Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on kidney transplantation and on patients with end-stage kidney disease. Transplantation activity has been substantially reduced, and kidney transplant recipients have suffered increased mortality. The introduction of vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 has offered considerable hope that it may be possible to protect patients from the risks associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection, and that more patients may once again have access to kidney transplantation.
