We have been waiting (somewhat patiently) for the last year for a vaccine to the Covid-19 virus so that we can get back to “normal.” With multiple vaccines available, we don’t need to take precautions anymore, right? Sorry to burst your bubble, but even though more people are becoming vaccinated it is still important to follow some simple and considerate health guidelines. We here at HPFY can fill you in on what we should be doing after we receive our vaccinations.
The past year has seen immeasurable and unprecedented chaos caused by Covid-19 in just about every corner of our country.

States have been rolling out vaccine eligibility by age and shortly just about everyone over the age of 16 will be eligible to receive a vaccination if they choose to have one. Even though these vaccines are becoming more available there are precautions we should take in order to ensure the safety of ourselves and those around us. The quicker we get vaccinated, the less of a chance the virus mutates into something potentially more dangerous. That’s why we should take some precautions for a little while longer.

Yes, fatigue is a real thing when it comes to coronavirus and it’s easy to say “I’ve had enough.” The vaccines are our best answer to ending this pandemic, but we need to do what’s right for just a little longer. Continue to wear a mask in public or when around those not fully vaccinated, wash your hands regularly, and (when possible) wear gloves. There is light at the end of the tunnel and with compliance, we will get there faster!!
