People with some underlying medical conditions, including thyroid disorders, are more likely to become severely ill if infected with COVID-19. Current COVID-19 vaccines continue to exhibit strong protection against severe disease and death across all virus variants seen to date. Therefore, reaching high coverage with the primary vaccination series and additional doses among all eligible people, especially the most vulnerable, remains a priority.
People with thyroid conditions, including autoimmune thyroid disease and thyroid cancer, should receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Consult your doctor for further questions and personal advice related to your individual circumstances.
