What protocols to follow after getting the COVID-19 vaccine

Insight from UA public health researcher Dr. Joe Gerald.

About 10 percent of Arizonans have received the COVID-19 vaccine as of early February. As state and county health leaders look to ramp up distribution, we got a better understanding of what protocols people should follow even after being vaccinated from Dr. Joe Gerald, a health services researcher at the University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. He addressed whether those vaccinated should still adhere to the CDC’s safety guidelines and if they should still take a COVID-19 test if they feel unwell.
