I have a pre-existing medical condition – should I get the vaccine?

You should discuss this with your doctor. Having an underlying health condition can make you more susceptible to severe COVID-19.
People with some pre-existing conditions with a higher risk of severe COVID-19 symptoms participated in the Pfizer clinical trials. There was no difference in how well the vaccine worked for these people. This included people with asthma a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2, chronic pulmonary disease, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension.
