COVID-19 Response Overview
The ASN Response Team COVID-19 portal includes many important resources for the Kidney Community. Resources such as CDC information pertinent to kidney professionals and patients, CMS COVID-19 updates, resources developed by the ASN Response Team, publications, and journal articles. These resources can be found in the COVID-19 section of the resource library.
The Health+ Long COVID Report was commissioned by HHS and produced by Coforma, an independent third-party design and research agency. This independently produced report compliments the existing landscape of Long COVID scientific literature and anecdotes with the narratives and expertise of caregivers, frontline workers, and people experiencing Long COVID and its associated conditions.
This module describes the experiences of numerous ASN members and volunteers as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic in the kidney community. The information presented in this module is intended to better prepare the kidney community for future pandemics or other wide-reaching healthcare emergencies and disasters.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic makes vaccination a major priority in the kidney community. ASN and CDC invite you to print and post this resource in your facility to encourage staff and patients to be vaccinated.
Note: The 3 poster pages have the same text; only the graphic at the top varies.
With the arrival of updated boosters, CDC is reframing what it means to be up to date with COVID-19 vaccination. You are up to date if you have completed a primary series and received the most recent booster dose recommended for you by CDC.
Today, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), in coordination with relevant departments and agencies across the U.S. Government, released the First Annual Report on Progress Towards Implementation of the American Pandemic Preparedness Plan, which details crucial advancements towards pandemic preparedness, including providing priority areas for investment and additional efforts needed in the years ahead.

Nephrology News & Issues: Among patients with kidney failure on dialysis, investigators found a low circulation of anti–SARS-CoV-2 antibodies correlated with an increased risk for COVID-19.
The American Society of Nephrology (ASN) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) hosted two 90-minute sessions with clinicians who were practicing in the acute in-hospital nephrology setting and experiencing a surge in COVID-19 outbreaks. The roundtable sessions explored challenges, lessons learned, and sought to identify best practices in acute in-hospital nephrology settings experiencing an acute and or a prolonged surge in COVID-19 outbreaks. Numerous treatment and logistical areas were explored, lessons learned were discussed, and participants shared recommendations for the future as facilities continue to care for patients through this and future pandemics.
