Cerebral palsy and coronavirus
The government has said that people with some underlying health conditions have a higher risk of severe illness from coronavirus.
The NHS lists CP in the 'clinically vulnerable' to coronavirus category. This is not the same as being 'extremely vulnerable' to coronavirus.
How much you’re at risk may depend on other health conditions. For example, if:
- you have asthma
- you have diabetes
- you’re offered a flu jab every year
Warning Contact your GP if you’re unsure
If you’re not sure whether you’re at risk, contact your GP for advice. They have access to your medical notes and can answer any concerns you have.
