In 2021, high blood pressure was the most common underlying condition identified in San Diego County’s COVID-19-related deaths.
The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked, as there are often no warning signs or symptoms to tell you something is wrong.

prevent heart disease and stroke and empowers the public to take
control of their heart health, know their blood pressure numbers, and
know what they mean.

188 sites across the U.S. and Mexico, with over 6,000 blood
pressure cuffs distributed across San Diego County.
