COVID-19 spreads mainly through close contact with someone who is infected. People who are infected but do not show symptoms can also spread the virus to others. The best ways to prevent illness and death are to get vaccinated and avoid being exposed to the virus.
You’re up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations if you have gotten your primary series* of COVID-19 vaccine and all recommended booster doses when you are eligible.
*The primary series includes an additional dose of mRNA vaccine for people who have compromised (weakened) immune systems.
Follow this guidance to protect your household and lower the chances of catching and spreading COVID-19.
You may experience some symptoms after vaccination. This is normal and these symptoms should go away quickly.
Wear a mask that protects you and your household.
