There is no data on sickle cell disease and COVID vaccination and it may not be advisable for people with sickle cell disease to take it.

While patients with sickle cell disease were not included in the original group of people in the COVID-19 vaccine research, many patients with sickle cell have been vaccinated since then and have done very well.
