The COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are safe and highly effective. A growing body of evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people are less likely to have asymptomatic infection and potentially less likely to transmit COVID-19 to others.
How long vaccine protection lasts and how much vaccines protect against COVID-19 variants are still under investigation. Until more is known and more people are vaccinated, we must all continue to take precautions, regardless of vaccination status.
