Wearing masks and social distancing help reduce your chance of being exposed to COVID-19 or spreading it to others, but these measures are not enough. Vaccines will work with your immune system so it will be ready to fight the virus if you are exposed.
Getting vaccinated and following the CDC’s recommendations to protect yourself and others will offer the best protection from COVID-19.
