One of the best ways to keep yourself and others safe from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated. Vaccines for COVID-19 are safe, highly effective, and widely available for free. In order to find a site near you offering vaccination, check out the PA Department of Health’s guide. Many pharmacies, including CVS, Rite-Aid, and Costco, also offer the COVID-19 vaccine at no charge.
If you have questions about the safety or efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines, and who may be eligible to receive them, you can read more at the US Food and Drug Administration’s website, or ask your primary care provider for more information.
Other ways to help stop the spread of COVID-19 are to wear face masks indoors that cover your nose and mouth, and to limit close physical contact with others, especially if you feel sick. The Pennsylvania Department of Health offers more information on how to stop the spread of COVID-19 infection.
