We are finally getting relief from the COVID 19 pandemic. States are loosening restrictions because of more people getting vaccinated. In Pennsylvania 44% of residents are fully vaccinated. Not the statistics we need to say we have beaten this virus but we are working hard every day to educate the public on the pros of receiving a vaccine. So what does this mean for you?
According to the CDC guidelines:
COVID-19 vaccines teach our immune systems how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19. It typically takes 2 weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. That means it is possible a person could still get COVID-19 before or just after vaccination and then get sick because the vaccine did not have enough time to provide protection. People are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, or 2 weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine.
Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
