Do I need to keep wearing my mask after getting the COVID-19 Vaccine? Yes. Some vaccines do not prevent you from getting the virus but keep you from getting sick if you get it. It’s important to continue using all the tools available to us to help stop this pandemic: wear a mask, stay 6 feet apart from people who don’t live in your home, wash your hands often, and stay home when you’re sick.
