COVID-19 Vaccines Are Safe

Millions of people have safely received a COVID-19 vaccine. These vaccines were evaluated in tens of thousands of participants during clinical trials. COVID-19 vaccines have met all of FDA’s rigorous scientific standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality needed to support emergency use authorization (EUA). We recommend you get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as one is available to you.

Guidance for Operating Child Care Programs During COVID-19

CDC’s updated Guidance for Operating Child Care Programs during COVID-19 provides information on mask use, screening, keeping children in contained groups, staggering schedules, communal spaces, food service, ventilation and water systems, vaccination, direct service providers, children with special needs, and protecting individuals at higher risk for severe illness. Recommendations include the following:

  • Everyone 2 years or older should wear a mask in childcare facilities, except when eating or sleeping.
  • Childcare programs conducting temperature screening should consider a combination of screening methods that use increased distance and physical barriers.
  • Getting vaccinated as soon as the opportunity is available is an important way for staff to stay safe and be less likely to get seriously ill from COVID-19.

Vaccinations for Teachers, School Staff and Childcare Workers

Pharmacies that are part of CDC’s Federal Retail Pharmacy Program are giving COVID-19 vaccination priority to all school staff and childcare workers throughout March. To support the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services directive prioritizing vaccination of teachers, school staff and childcare workers, CDC created a toolkit to help school and childcare administrators and directors encourage staff to get vaccinated. This includes teachers, childcare workers, teaching assistants, paraprofessional educators, office staff, bus drivers, school nurses and counselors, school nutrition staff, coaches and athletic trainers, custodians, and security staff. Education leaders can use the ideas and materials in this toolkit to communicate with staff.

How to Talk to Your Close Contacts

Contact tracing helps protect you, your family, and your community by letting people know they may have been exposed to COVID-19. Contact tracing also helps people who may have been exposed to get tested and asks people to self-isolate if they have COVID-19 or self-quarantine if they are a close contact of someone who does. By letting your close contacts know they may have been exposed to COVID-19, you can help protect them and others in your community.
