CDC Seeks Information on Cases of COVID-19 in Fully Vaccinated Individuals with ESRD

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working to characterize patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on maintenance dialysis who are diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infections after being fully vaccinated. The CDC invites the kidney community to contribute to these efforts and is requesting healthcare providers who work with patients with ESRD on maintenance dialysis to report SARS-CoV-2 infections that meet the following criteria:

  • Patients with ESRD on maintenance dialysis (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis) with a laboratory-confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection diagnosed by PCR, other NAAT, or antigen who are >14 days from receipt of the second COVID-19 vaccination of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or >14 days from receipt of the first COVID-19 vaccination of a one-single dose COVID-19 vaccine.

If you have any cases to report, please email the CDC’s Dialysis Coalition at using the subject line: “Breakthrough Cases” and include the following information in your email:

  • Your first and last name
  • Facility name
  • Phone number

Please do not include any patient names or personal identifiers.
