Any vaccine amongst the available ones can be taken with minimal risk. The benefits outweigh the risk of the vaccine, according to the latest ICMR guidelines. Please carry all documents and reports pertaining to your medical condition or allergy or reaction to the vaccination centre and inform the vaccination medical officer about your condition. After taking the vaccine, it is strongly recommended to stay under observation at the centre for a period of 30 minutes. Inform about any abnormal symptoms to the medical officer urgently. It is also recommended that the vaccination centre have means of resuscitation available for emergency use. Please ensure that such means are available.
Next Steps
Continue your current medications and take the vaccine. Maintain Covid-19 appropriate behavior.

Go ahead with covaxin. If you worried about cons of it then it is worthless in comparison with pro's of it. Although cholesterol and blood pressure is there but it's not that remarkable.
