Adherence to health measures and screening for symptoms of COVID-19 remain very important over the next few months to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

A person is considered fully vaccinated one week after receiving their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The second dose is necessary and provides optimal protection over the longer term.
