The pandemic is still going and going strong. Even with a vaccine, it's not time to be hanging out in restaurants and going on unmasked visits with people. We're close to getting through this! Come on!

@pandora_parrot genuine question - why not? if you have the vaccine aren't you pretty much set?

pandemic 

@birdbrain Not actually! None of the vaccines are perfectly effective at preventing catching or transmitting the disease. They are perfectly effective at making sure you don't have a severe reaction, but don't 100% prevent catching/transmitting.

Until more people are vaccinated, if you caught it and gave it to an unvaccinated person, you're helping perpetuate the pandemic by spreading it to others.

Now hanging out with other vaccinated folks? Not as big a deal.

@pandora_parrot Thank you! I figured the vaccine had you entirely covered.

@birdbrain I also learned that the Johnson and Johnson one is only 66% effective, whereas getting two shots of Pfizer or moderna gets you 95% immunity.
