Substance use disorders (SUDs) are among several health conditions that have been identified by the CDC as increasing a person’s risk for becoming severely ill from COVID-19. For this reason, it is especially important that people who use or are addicted to drugs become vaccinated. Because people with a history of experiencing stigma from the healthcare system due to an addiction may be hesitant, community leaders, healthcare providers, and others in the community must play a role in encouraging and facilitating vaccination for people with drug problems.
