The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week updated the list of underlying medical conditions that put adults of any age at higher risk for severe COVID-19 based on the latest scientific evidence. The conditions are grouped by the level of evidence and will be updated as the science evolves. 

As the list is not exhaustive, the CDC guidance states, “The list should not be used to exclude people with underlying conditions from recommended preventive measures such as booster doses of vaccines or needed therapies.”
