Continue to follow CDC guidelines to prevent COVID-19

Vaccine supply and eligibility varies widely by location. If you are unable to receive the vaccine, you can still protect yourself and those around you by following guidelines that have proven effective in slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Wear a mask

Social distance

Wash hands frequently

COVID-19 spreads mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, or raises their voice (e.g., while shouting, chanting, or singing). These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.1

Staying socially distanced from others, handwashing, and wearing a mask are still critical in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
