We’ve been fighting COVID-19 together for nearly a year and a half. And it hasn’t been easy. While the fight against COVID-19 seems to be going in the right direction, it is not over, and we must continue the fight now and for the foreseeable future. So staying diligent in practicing preventive measures and, most importantly, getting vaccinated are essential to protecting as many people as possible.

The answer is yes –even if you’ve been vaccinated. The reason is that the vaccine prevents you from getting severe disease from COVID-19, but what we don’t know is if it protects you from spreading it to other people. So there’s a distinct possibility that people who had the vaccine still carry the virus and can infect other people even though they are not sick. And that’s why it’s really important to continue to wear the mask until many, many, many people have been vaccinated.

As vaccine rollout continues across the country and the world, we are approaching the possibilityof a return to normalcy. Yetmany people are still hesitant to receive the vaccine, voicing concerns over their rapid development or because of myths about the vaccines circulating on social media. In order to alleviate confusion and feararound the vaccines, the medical experts of AnMed Health have addressed some of the common myths and their correlative truths, supported by scientifically proven facts, behind the COVID-19 vaccines.
