Good afternooon,

I understand your concerns regarding receiving the COVID-19 vaccine because of acid reflux and a decrease in body weight and I will try to assist you.

For your information, there is no contraindication for a person with acid reflux and reduced weight to get a covid-19 vaccine. However, since we don’t have the full medical background of your condition, it is best for you to talk to your doctor before getting the vaccine for clarification.

You can also talk to us online so we can help you further.
