Frequently Asked Questions

What does the vaccine actually mean for changes for daily life? Still wear a mask and keep distance?

It’s not yet known how long the vaccine’s protection lasts or how effective it is at reducing the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, so you’ll still need to follow all the recommendations for protecting yourself and others. That includes covering your mouth and nose with a mask, staying six feet away from others, and washing your hands frequently. This guidance may change over time, as more people get vaccinated and as experts monitor how effective the vaccines are and how the virus is spreading.
