If I get the COVID-19 vaccine, do I need to take other precautions?

Yes, even if you are vaccinated, it is recommended that you continue to wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, keep a distance of six feet, and limit gatherings. Many people in our state need to wait for months to get vaccinated, and it is recommended that these precautions be taken to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to people who have not yet been vaccinated.

The COVID-19 vaccine works well, but it is not 100% effective. Some people can get COVID-19 even if they are vaccinated. Vaccine research mainly focuses on whether the vaccine can prevent you from contracting COVID-19; they have not studied too much whether the vaccine will prevent you from spreading it to others. Please continue with your precautions before we learn more.
