As California prepares to reopen fully on June 15, the assumption is that everyone who wants a COVID-19 vaccine will already have gotten one.

But some people have medical conditions that prevent them from getting a vaccine, even if they want one. People in this situation will face the difficult choice of staying isolated or risk being in contact with unmasked people in restaurants, stores and offices.

KPBS wants to talk to people whose doctors have advised not to take a vaccine. Please share your experiences with us, and we will keep your name and information confidential.
