What Works

Social distancing, quarantine, isolation, masks, handwashing, and other interventions helped to slow the spread of COVID-19 prior to widespread vaccine availability. Those things continue to be important barriers against the disease for those that are unvaccinated, including those who are too young, have compromised immune systems, allergic reactions, and those who choose to remain unvaccinated.

The goal of vaccinations is not to just protect those who have received the vaccine, but to protect the wider community by reducing the number of potentially infected individuals that we may come in contact with. This is often referred to as "Herd Immunityā€¯.

Strategy

Vaccination of as many people as possible is our best tool to end this pandemic. Vaccines are now available to anyone who wants one, at no cost, at pharmacies, doctors offices, health departments, and other healthcare providers.
