How do I know if I am part of the clinically extremely vulnerable category for the COVID-19 vaccine? Why isn’t my medical condition included?

Question: 

How do I know if I am part of the clinically extremely vulnerable category for the COVID-19 vaccine? Why isn’t my medical condition included?

Answer: 
The list of eligible conditions and supporting clinical guidance was carefully developed with input from over 60 specialists and family doctors around the province. Expert physicians and providers in cancer care, kidney diseases and other immunocompromised conditions worked with public health and international COVID-19 data to define B.C.’s clinically extremely vulnerable list. Pediatricians were included to review relevant information for youth aged 16 to 19. The work was supported by an ethics expert to make sure the list is as fair and equitable as possible.
 
 
We recognize that not all medical conditions are included on the clinically extremely vulnerable list. The list identifies conditions that are the strongest drivers of hospitalization and mortality risk. If you have questions about your medical condition and COVID-19 immunization, contact your doctor or primary care provider.
