Yes. Infact if is hypertensive, he should take the vaccine as soon as possible if there is no other contraindications. Hypertension is a comorbidity and people with Comorbidities should Proactively take the vaccine. It's prevents risk of major complications even if someone gets the infection which is important in high risk patients.
