The release of two effective coronavirus vaccines has given medical experts hope that the end of the pandemic is finally within reach. And despite a slow rollout, a recent overhaul of policies by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — as well as the likely approval of two more vaccines — has many expecting that the spread of COVID will begin to slow down as more doses are administered.
But despite the progress, experts are still warning the public not to assume the vaccine solves all our problems. According to public health officials, the biggest mistake you can make after getting your COVID vaccine is immediately going back out and socializing like normal.
While vaccines will eventually help bring coronavirus outbreaks under control, health officials are warning that jumping right back into social activities post-inoculation can be a risky move, The Guardian reports.
