About the COVID-19 Vaccines

The Center for Disease Control (CDC), our nation’s health protection agency, states that “the best protection from COVID-19 will be a combination of getting a COVID-19 vaccine, wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, avoiding crowds, and washing your hands often. No one tool alone is going to stop the pandemic.”
