It?s April 2021, and sometimes I need to remind myself that obesity is classed as comorbidity? I?m not sure if it?s denial or issues with my own mortality, but when I look in the mirror I think of myself as just being overweight. What?s the reason for the statement, you ask? With current world issues (COVID-19) I was content waiting for my for my number to be called for the shot, I completely understand the reasoning behind prioritizing frontline workers and the venerable. But upon receiving an email from a concerned loved one, it was brought to my attention that due to my weight issues (being obese) I could skip the line and get my shot. I?ve posted a video documenting my personal experience getting the first of two COVID-19 shots in Ontario. Please watch and let?s talk about it.

Anyone 16 and over can get a Covid shot in my state now. In most cases, no appointment is necessary because clinics are now walk ins. It's THAT easy.

A BMI over 30 was a countable co morbidity before the shot was universally available.

being obese is a comorbidity. And evidently a fairly large percentage of people who've died from COVID have been obese - which is why obesity is one of the medical conditions that qualified people to get the vaccines before they were available to the general public. I don't know about the situation in Canada, but as Kim said, anyone over age 16 can get them in the US now - and the supply of vaccines is now greater than the demand, so there are many sites where you can just walk in and get your vaccine then and there.
