Susan N started this petition to Governor Gavin Newsom

We, the undersigned, call on California Gov. Gavin Newsom to include people with Type 1 diabetes (T1D) in the group of people with underlying health conditions who will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in March. The state has included people over the age of 16 who have Type 2 diabetes (T2D) among those with underlying health conditions who are eligible for the vaccine in March. Recent studies show people with T1D face similar risks of severe illness, hospitalization and death caused by COVID-19 as people with T2D.

Studies have found COVID-19 severity is more than tripled in people with T1D. People with T1D also have a 3.3-fold greater risk of severe illness, are 3.9 times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 and experience a three-fold increase in mortality compared to those without T1D. Vaccinating all Californians with T1D or T2D will reduce serious illness and deaths from COVID-19 and increase the state’s hospital capacity.
