CDC Recommends Everyone With Preexisting Conditions Gets COVID-19 Vaccine

The coronavirus mainly comes from animals and a majority of those who were infected early either worked at or frequently visited the Huanan seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, according to The Guardian. The virus is similar to Severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (Mers).  The Wuhan coronavirus is transmitted from person to person through “droplet transmission.” That means an infected person can pass the virus by sneezing or coughing on another person as well as by direct contact.  While a majority of the cases have been detected in the United States and China — with more than 18.3 million confirmed cases and 323,000 deaths in the United States — it has now reached many countries around the world. It has also been confirmed in Italy, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and many other eastern countries.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has new recommendations for who should get the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the latest CDC guidance, those who suffer from preexisting conditions are advised to get the vaccine when possible as the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the nation.

“Adults of any age with certain underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19,” the CDC wrote, according to Newsweek, adding “mRNA COVID-19 vaccines may be administered to people with underlying medical conditions provided they have not had a severe allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in the vaccine.”

Preexisting conditions include weakened immune systems, autoimmune conditions, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and Bell’s palsy.
