People with some underlying medical conditions, including diabetes, 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.
Individuals with diabetes should be aware that any vaccination may make blood sugar levels go up - the body needs energy to produce an immune response, so it may release some extra glucose (sugar).
