#COVID19Vaccines protect against serious illness. The more people fully vaccinated the greater the impact to slow spread. But as activities move indoors this fall/winter, layers of protection & safer ways to connect are still needed➡️

Individual protective #PublicHealth measures, like wearing a mask, improving indoor ventilation, washing your hands often & staying home when sick will help prevent the spread of #Flu, #COVID19 & other respiratory illnesses!

3/3 Layers build up better protection: wearing face masks, keeping up with hand hygiene, and staying home/away from others if sick, help keep us/others healthy, reduce virus spread, and ease pressure on the health system. ➡️

2/3 This is even more important as we head into respiratory infections season. Getting fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and up-to-date with other recommended vaccines, including the annual #FluShot, is an important foundation of protection ➡️
