The best protection from COVID-19 and its emerging variants is to be fully vaccinated. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other agencies continue to use science and current available data to provide guidance on getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
This includes the approved vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. Speak with your health care provider, such as your doctor or pharmacist, to make sure you are fully vaccinated and have the latest information to protect yourself and others.
Understand the effectiveness, possible side effects, and safety of the vaccine.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has answers to your most common questions on the CDC website, including the measures taken by the FDA to ensure vaccine safety. For more information and videos, visit the Wyoming Department of Health website.
You’ll pay nothing.
The vaccine is provided free of charge under the federal CARES Act. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming will waive all costs for fees charged to administer the vaccine.
Fully vaccinated individuals can resume activities without a mask.
According to the CDC, you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine and two weeks after your single dose of the J&J/Janssen vaccine. Until you are fully vaccinated, continue wearing your mask, keep at least six feet away from others, and wash your hands often. For more information on wearing a mask follow the CDC guidelines on steps everyone can take to make gatherings safer. Learn more on how to improve how wearing a mask can protect you.
Don’t let your guard down.
Even after you get your vaccine or booster, continue monitoring your health for symptoms of COVID-19. The vaccine is not 100% effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19, however studies show it will help keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get it.
