  • According to the CDC, it takes the body a few weeks to build up immunity to the coronavirus after receiving the vaccine.
  • Upon getting vaccinated, people should still make a point to follow coronavirus safety guidelines like social distancing and mask-wearing.
  • More than 10 million Americans have already been vaccinated.

Thanks to the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna, we finally have a reason to believe that the pandemic will be nothing more than a distant memory by the end of the year. Impressively, both of the aforementioned vaccines were found to be 95% effective at preventing a COVID-19 infection during clinical trials. As it stands now, the only question is how quickly the U.S. can vaccinate a majority of the population and, in turn, achieve herd immunity.

With the vaccine rollout in the U.S. slowly but surely picking up steam, it's important that people who receive the vaccine be cognizant of the fact that it's still possible to catch COVID-19 after the fact. Aside from the fact that both vaccines aren't 100% effective, the CDC notes that immunity to COVID post-vaccination can sometimes take weeks to develop.
