Dr. Jain spoke w Fox 32 Chicago this am. Key points
Don’t roll back mask mandates! We are in a race for vaccines in arms before variants spread out of control or new variants arise
Plan a virtual or distanced #StPatricksDay
We may see older kids vaccinated by the end of the year. Right now the Pfizer vaccine is available to 16 and older
Vaccines for kids important but not necessary to reopen schools
If you had an arm rash after Moderna shot 1 it likely won’t happen after shot 2
If you are vaccinated you can gather with a few other vaccinated individuals and likely even gather with those vaccinated individuals without a mask. BUT remember we still don’t know if vaccinated ppl can transmit #COVID19 yet so know your risk and other potential exposures. Especially if you live with people who are not vaccinated.
So in summary, please stay masked up a little longer! If we want to reopen our businesses and the economy and keep them open we must double down on things we know work! Wearing a mask. Not gathering indoors.
