COVID vaccine re-prioritization in California - Type 2 Diabetes
California recently re-prioritized COVID vaccination groups/tiers to include those with Type 2 Diabetes with an A1C greater than 7.5, beginning March 15. If your A1C is any less than that, even with comorbidity recognized by CDC, then it sounds like you might have to wait until your age group is called, which includes healthier people, later this summer, maybe. Re-prioritization won't solve the vaccine shortage problem, but that's another issue. I, myself, could potentially stop Metformin and/or Jardiance temporarily and get my A1C up to qualify. That sounds like a stupid thing to do, and I'm not recommending that anyone do that, but what if I catch COVID before receiving the vaccine? I don't know which is worse. Are other states splitting hairs on the degree of disability and high risk health conditions? When I start thinking about bioethics, it drives me nuts. There are people far off worse than me.
