It’s hard to believe that we are well into the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic.
And while the pandemic isn’t over yet, we certainly seem to be moving in the right direction, with more folks getting vaccinated and protected every day and fewer cases and deaths.
COVID and COVID Vaccines
So what’s next?
We still don’t have COVID vaccines for kids under age 12 years, although the Pfizer COVID vaccine has been authorized for teens who are at least 12 years old…
And there are still a lot of people who haven’t yet been vaccinated!
Add in the fact that there is still a lot of COVID cases in deaths in many parts of the world, including more and more variants, and there is some concern that another COVID wave could return next fall or winter.
What can you do to protect your self and your family?
The easiest and safest thing to do is to get vaccinated and protected if you can.
Younger kids who can’t yet be vaccinated should still wear a mask and practice social distancing in high risk situations, especially in public settings and when around people who don’t live in their household.
