- Important: CDC finds that vaccines prevent Covid infection. That means once you’re vaccinated, you’re much less likely to get sick AND to spread the virus to others. Getting vaccinated can save your life and the lives of people around you. (By @DrTomFrieden)
- People are tired of the virus, but the variants are giving the virus a second wind. (By @DrTomFrieden)
