Why Should I Get Vaccinated?
- Getting a vaccine is one more tool you can use to protect yourself and your loved ones. Once you’ve been vaccinated, you have the upper hand against the virus, because it means that even if you are exposed, you have a very low risk of getting COVID-19. In the rare instance that you do still contract the virus, it won’t be as severe.
- People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic. CDC has guidance for activities you are able to participate in more safely, like traveling within the U.S. and visiting with other vaccinated people.
