Yes – the vaccines and boosters are safe for people who have heart disease. 

 

People with existing heart disease have a higher risk of severe illness and death related to COVID-19, and COVID-19 can also increase the risk of developing heart disease. This is because COVID-19 can also lead to problems with blood vessels and blood clots.

 

The best way to lower your risk of severe COVID-19 is to have all the recommended doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, including the boosters, because this reduces the risk of severe illness if you catch COVID-19. If you are living with heart disease, taking your prescribed medicines for your condition is also very important.
