Camden Coalition Medical Director Jubril Oyeyemi addresses common concerns about the vaccines in the videos below.
How is COVID-19 spread?
COVID-19 spreads when an infected person breathes out droplets and very small particles that contain the virus. These droplets and particles can be breathed in by other people or land on their eyes, noses, or mouth. In some circumstances, they may contaminate surfaces they touch. People who are closer than 6 feet from the infected person are most likely to get infected.
Types of Spread
COVID-19 is spread in three main ways
- Breathing in the air when close to an infected person who is exhaling small droplets and particles that contain the virus.
- Having these small droplets and particles that contain viruses land on the eyes, nose, or mouth, especially through splashes and sprays like a cough or sneeze.
- Touching eyes, nose, or mouth with hands that have the virus on them.
What can I do to slow the spread of COVID-19?
- Get a COVID-19 vaccine.
- Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouthto help protect yourself and others.
- Stay at least 6 feet apart from otherswho don’t live with you.
- Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
- Wash your hands oftenwith soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
Who should get tested for COVID-19?
The following people should get tested for COVID-19:
- People who have symptomsof COVID-19.
- Most people who have had close contact(within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone with confirmed COVID-19.
- Fully vaccinated people should be tested 3-5 days following a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 and wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result.
- People who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months and recovered do not need to get tested following an exposure as long as they do not develop new symptoms.
- Unvaccinated people who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot physically distance as needed to avoid exposure, such as travel, attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded or poorly-ventilated indoor settings.
How do I get a COVID-19 vaccine?
Find a COVID-19 Vaccine: Search vaccines.gov, text your zip code to 438829, or call 1-800-232-0233 to find locations near you.
There are several ways you can look for vaccination providers near you.
- Visit govto find vaccination providers near you. Learn more about COVID-19 Vaccination locations.
- Text your zip code to 438829 or call 1-800-232-0233 to find vaccine locations near you.
- Check your local pharmacy’s website to see if vaccination appointments are available. Find out which pharmacies are participating in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program.
- Contact your state health departmentto find additional vaccination locations in the area.
- Check your local news outlets. They may have information on how to get a vaccination appointment.
- People who have been asked or referred to get tested by their healthcare provider, or state, tribal, or territorial health department.
CDC recommends that anyone with any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 get tested, regardless of vaccination status or prior infection. If you get tested because you have symptoms or were potentially exposed to the virus, you should stay away from others pending test results and follow the advice of your health care provider or a public health professional.
What is the COVID-19 Delta variant and am I at risk?
- COVID-19, like most viruses, constantly change and become more diverse.
- The Delta variant is highly contagious, nearly twice as contagious as previous variants.
- The greatest risk of transmission is among unvaccinated people who are much more likely to contract, and therefore transmit the virus.
- Fully vaccinated people with Delta variant breakthrough infections can spread the virus to others. However, vaccinated people appear to be infectious for a shorter period. This means fully vaccinated people are likely infectious for less time than unvaccinated people.
- The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19, including the Delta Variant, is to get vaccinated. Find a COVID-19 vaccine.
Will I need a COVID-19 booster?
- Booster shots are not currently available. The Department of Health and Human Services announced a plan to begin offering COVID-19 booster shots this fall.
- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) are conducting an independent evaluation to determine the safety and effectiveness of a booster dose.
- The goal is for people to start receiving a COVID-19 booster shot beginning in the fall, with individuals being eligible starting 8 months after they received their second doseof an mRNA vaccine (either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).
