vaccination & testing

Vaccines are now available for everyone! As America continues to ramp up vaccination efforts, we still need to use testing as an essential tool in the fight against COVID-19.

 

Testing gives us crucial data about the spread of COVID-19 — especially as more and more people get vaccinated.  It’s the only way we can know for sure if we are bringing infection numbers down. Testing also helps us understand how effective vaccines are at preventing infections. We already know they prevent hospitalization and disease, and that the risk to still get infected after vaccination is low. But how low? Testing further helps us investigate if our vaccines are holding up against variants. So, let’s keep testing!

    Do I still need a test after I get vaccinated? Yes, we still recommend getting tested if you suspect you have been exposed to COVID-19, if you are visiting loved ones and wish to be safe, or if you are required by travel. And of course if you feel sick, get a test right away!

    If you are vaccinated and get COVID-19 symptoms, you should still take a test! Vaccines protect us from severe sickness, but there is a small risk to still get a mild infection and potentially pass the disease to others. Keep others safe #TakeTheTest

  • screening testing

    We’re all curious: as people get vaccinated, why should we continue to test for COVID-19? Testing gives us crucial data about new variants, local outbreaks, and if infections are going down. Help us track COVID-19 and #TakeTheTest

  • when will I get vaccinated?

    When can I get vaccinated? Anytime! Vaccines are now available for everyone, nationwide. While we all get our shots and wait for protection to kick in, let’s continue to wash hands, wear a mask indoors, and get tested if we travel or work in high risk jobs. #TakeTheTest 

  • can vaccinated people still potentially give me COVID-19?

    Can I still catch the virus from someone who is vaccinated? Truth is: While unlikely, it’s possible, so we need to continue testing until we know for sure. Testing also helps us understand how the vaccines are holding up against new variants. #TakeTheTest

  • protecting our communities

    Whether vaccinated or not yet vaccinated, we all need to work together to protect everyone in our community. Testing is the only way to know if we are successful in keeping infections low. If you travel, work a high risk job, think you’ve been exposed: #TakeTheTest !

  • the path to masks off

    The Path to Masks Off: Experts think we will not reach herd immunity until 70-80% of the population is vaccinated—but this is just an estimate! The only way to truly know if we are beating this virus is to continue to test.  #TakeTheTest
