People at High Risk

Updated Dec. 8, 2022

Some people are more likely than others to become severely ill due to COVID-19.

Severe illness means that a person with COVID-19 may need: hospitalization, intensive care, a ventilator to help them breathe or they may even die.

People at increased risk, and those who live or visit with them, need to take precautions to protect against COVID-19.

The CDC maintains a list of medical conditions that puts people into higher risk from COVID-19, including:

  • Older adults
  • People with asthma
  • People with HIV
  • People with other underlying medical conditions
  • People with disabilities
  • Pregnant or recently pregnant people
  • Racial and ethnic minority groups
