Covid-19 Vaccine Updates
Vaccinating those at higher risk
Beginning March 15, healthcare providers may use their clinical judgment to vaccinate individuals aged 16-64 who are deemed to be at the very highest risk to get very sick from COVID-19 because they have the following severe health conditions:
從 3 月 15 日開始，醫護提供者可以為16-64 歲，他們臨床診斷為可能感染新冠病毒並且患重症的風險最高的人接種疫苗，因為他們有以下嚴重的健康狀況：
• Cancer, current with weakened immune system
• Chronic kidney disease, stage 4 or above
• Chronic pulmonary disease, oxygen-dependent
• Down syndrome
• Solid organ transplant, leading to a weakened immune system
• Sickle cell disease
• Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease, or cardiomyopathies (but not hypertension)
• Severe obesity (Body Mass Index ≥ 40 kg/m2)
• Type 2 diabetes mellitus with hemoglobin A1c level greater than 7.5%
• 慢性腎病，第 4 階段或以上
• 嚴重肥胖（身體質量指數≥ 40 kg/m2）
• 血紅蛋白 A1c 水準大於 7.5% 的 2 型糖尿病
If as a result of a developmental or other severe high-risk disability one or more of the following applies:
• The individual is likely to develop severe life-threatening illness or death from COVID-19 infection
• Acquiring COVID-19 will limit the individual’s ability to receive ongoing care or services vital to their well-being and survival
• Providing adequate and timely COVID care will be particularly challenging as a result of the individual’s disability.
Testing for COVID-19 during vaccine rollout
It will take many months before enough people are fully vaccinated to stop the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, at this time, CDPH does not recommend changes to testing requirements for individuals, even those who have been fully vaccinated. As the science and evidence evolves, CDPH will issue updated guidance to reflect new information and data.
• Get tested: If you have symptoms or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, you should get tested. This is true even after being vaccinated. Tests for COVID-19 work the same in vaccinated people as they do in unvaccinated people.
• Testing keeps you, your family, and friends safe
o There are usually no out-of-pocket costs to get tested at state testing sites.
o Test results are usually returned in no more than two days.
o See the testing page or call (833) 422-4255 to find a test site near you
o Discuss your symptoms with your healthcare provider
o 查看測試頁面或致電 （833） 422-4255 尋找您附近的測試點
If your job requires it, you still need to get tested regularly, even if you had the vaccine
I have allergies. Should I get the COVID-19 vaccine?
It depends. CDC recommends that:
• If you have ever had a severe allergic reaction to any ingredient in a COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get that specific vaccine.
• If you have a severe allergic reaction after getting the first shot, you should not get the second shot.
• If you have had an immediate allergic reaction—even if it was not severe—to any ingredient in an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get either of the currently available mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
• If you had an immediate allergic reaction after getting the first dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get the second dose.
• People who are allergic to polyethylene glycol (PEG) or polysorbate should not get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.
• If you have had a severe allergic reaction to other vaccines or injections, you should ask your doctor if you should get a COVID-19 vaccine.
• People with a history of severe allergic reactions not related to vaccines or injections may still get vaccinated. People may get vaccinated even with a:
o History of allergies to oral medications
o Family history of severe allergic reactions
o Milder allergy to vaccines
• 如果您在接種了第一劑 mRNA 新冠疫苗后立即出現過敏反應，則不應接種第二劑。
• 對聚乙二醇 （PEG） 或聚糖酸鹽過敏的人不應接種 mRNA 新冠疫苗。
