Yes, have a PCP, but looking for guidance from a physician/practitioner specializing in immunology, infectious disease or a seasoned pulmonologist, as I believe their insight and/or experience would likely be more pertinent to the question than that of my family physician.

Welcome to Connect @curious2know – We are not medical professionals, We can not answer medical questions like this. We are patients helping other patients. You ask a fantastic question. Perhaps call your pharmacist or PCP to see if it's ok, then see if there are any available if it's still ok to have the shot. It will not protect you from COVID-19. What is your major concern with having the shot if it's available and ok to get?

Hello@curious2know – I agree that a specialist would be able to answer your question.
Given most of us as patients do not have direct access to specialists, your doctor is the person to direct this question to. She/he should have the resources to get you accurate information specific to your condition.
