We have the Tools to Fight Omicron
Vaccines remain the best public health measure to protect people from COVID-19, including severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. Vaccines also help to slow transmission and reduce the likelihood of new variants emerging. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends:
Everyone 5 years and older protect themselves from COVID-19 by getting fully vaccinated.
Everyone ages 12 years and older should keep up-to-date with a booster shot at least:
Two months after their initial J&J/Janssen vaccine
Five months after completing their Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine series
Six months after completing their primary Moderna vaccine series
Masks offer protection against all variants. The CDC recommends:
Continuing to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high community transmission, regardless of vaccination status.
Tests can tell you if you are currently infected with COVID-19:
Individuals can use the COVID-19 Viral Testing Tool to help determine what kind of test to seek.
Self-tests can be used at home or anywhere, are easy to use, and produce rapid results.
If your self-test has a positive result, stay home or isolate for 10 days, wear a mask if you have contact with others, and call your healthcare provider.
Until we know more about the risk of Omicron, it is important to use all tools available to protect yourself and others.
