The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted health care across the globe. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been substantial changes in the approach toward kidney transplantation and management of the virus in transplant recipients. Chronic immunosuppression and comorbidities in renal transplant recipients place them at risk during the pandemic. Data on the risk factors, presentation, and management of kidney transplant patients have become more robust over time. Relevant data on this topic was procured and synthesized with the aid of a comprehensive Medline search on all published studies that investigated COVID-19 infection in kidney transplant recipients. This comprehensive review summarizes the current literature on the epidemiology, clinical features, complications, graft outcomes, and current management of COVID-19 infection in kidney transplant recipients. We further summarize published literature on immunization in kidney transplant recipients.
