It is particularly important that a person with type 2 diabetes receives a COVID-19 vaccination. This is because they are at an increased risk of serious complications if they acquire the virus and go on to develop the disease. There are several vaccines available, all of which are safe for people with type 2 diabetes.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) list a number of medical conditions that can cause a person to get more seriously ill if they develop COVID-19. This list includes type 2 diabetes. Therefore, the CDC encourages everyone with type 2 diabetes to get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible to help protect themselves from the virus.
The CDC has prioritized people living with diabetes for COVID-19 vaccination. This means that most states prioritize individuals living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes equally for access to vaccines. A person can check the rules and availability in their state to see if they are eligible for the vaccine. A person with type 2 diabetes has an increased risk of experiencing severe complications if they develop COVID-19.
They may be more at risk of having high blood sugar levels and pneumonia. They may also have a higher likelihood of death. If an individual has type 2 diabetes, they should ensure they receive vaccination against COVID-19. If a person has type 2 diabetes and develops COVID-19, they should contact a doctor immediately.
