Stay Safe, Vaccinate

Covid update according to the CDC:

Vaccine Safety and Monitoring

  • COVID-19 vaccines were developed using science that has been around for decades.
  • COVID-19 vaccines are safe—much safer than getting COVID-19.
  • COVID 19-vaccines are effective at preventing severe illness from COVID-19 and limiting the spread of the virus that causes it.
  • Vaccines Are Widely Available for Everyone 5 Years and Older
  • Children ages 5–11 years can now get Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Booster shots are available to everyone ages 16 years and older who is fully vaccinated.
  • Moderately or severely immunocompromised people ages 12 years and older who completed their Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine primary series and ages 18 years or older who completed their Moderna COVID-19 vaccine primary series should plan to get an additional primary dose at least 28 days after their second dose.

Covid-19 Masks

  • Wearing a mask is an effective way to reduce the spread of earlier forms of the virus, the Delta variant and other known variants.
  • People who are not fully vaccinated should take steps to protect themselves, including wearing a mask indoors in public at all levels of community transmission.
  • People who are fully vaccinated should wear a mask indoors in areas of substantial or high transmission.
  • Wearing a mask is very important if you or someone in your household has a weakened immune system, has an underlying medical condition, is an older adult, is not fully vaccinated.

Covid Testing:

COVID-19 tests can detect either SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, or antibodies that your body makes after getting COVID-19 or after getting vaccinated. Tests for SARS-CoV-2 tell you if you have an infection at the time of the test. Tests for antibodies may tell you if you have had a past infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. Your body creates antibodies after getting infected with SARS-CoV-2 or after getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
