COVID Vaccine for Adults

We hit a milestone, as per CDC reports. Over 70% of adult US citizens have already got at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and half of the adult population has been fully vaccinated. 

This respite comes at a time when the country is still fighting the Delta variant, and people are trying their best to get back to normal life. 

At Tots N Teens in Texas, we’re committed to staying up-to-date on COVID vaccine information as it rolls out. In this article, we’ve put together a few facts you should know about COVID vaccines for adults. 

What Do We Know About the COVID Vaccine?

All the COVID vaccine clinical trials suggest that the vaccine is highly effective in preventing COVID-19 infections. Vaccines can also prevent severe symptoms and complications, and deaths caused by COVID. 

While the vaccines are extremely efficient, the Delta variant is proving more infectious than previous variants. 

So far, the number of Delta variant infections recorded in vaccinated people is lower than for unvaccinated individuals. Moreover, even if they do get infected, vaccinated people experience milder symptoms. Nevertheless, vaccinated individuals are still likely to spread the Delta variant or any other forms of COVID. Therefore, precaution is advised. 

What Can You Do After Full Vaccination?

Two weeks after receiving both doses of the COVID vaccine, you’ll be considered fully vaccinated. Clinical trials of Moderna, Pfizer, and Janssen show that they’re highly effective in preventing COVID-19 infections. Hence, once you’re fully vaccinated, you are protected against future infections.

However, to decrease the risk of spreading COVID to others, vaccinated people should continue wearing masks in public settings. Taking necessary health precautions also ensures that you have a lower chance of being infected with the Delta variant, which seems to spread faster than earlier forms of COVID-19. 

If you or any other member of your household has a weak immune system or increased risk of disease, you should follow all the recommended safety precautions.

For fully vaccinated citizens, getting tested or self-quarantine is not mandatory before or after travel to the US. However, if you’re traveling to another country, you might still need to get tested, depending on their safety protocols. 

If you come into close contact with someone who is COVID positive, you should get tested immediately, even if you’re fully vaccinated.
