The CDC is recommending that people continue to wear masks even if they are fully vaccinated. They are also renewing their efforts to get unvaccinated people vaccinated.
The Delta variant is responsible for over 200% increase in hospitalizations in Missouri alone.
Regarding the unvaccinated, infectious disease physicians are describing them as incubators for new variants to develop and spread.
Please help keep yourselves and your communities safe.

My husband and I have both of our vaccinations for Covid-19. We will continue to wear our masks to try to keep safe as this Covid variant is spreading fast. We are trying to do everything possible to keep safe. I do not understand why a lot of people did not go back and get their second vaccinations after they got their first if the type they got requires two vaccines. Most younger people feel it is over and done with and do not need to get vaccinated. This worries my husband and I because we feel there is going to be a huge spike in Covid cases due to this as it is spreading fast as we see it is already in all 50 states. They say the cases are doubling every two weeks. With everyone traveling and crowded beaches this holiday weekend I feel there will be a huge spike in cases of Covid with the variant. If they come out with the fact we need a "booster" or another vaccine, my husband and I are going to get it as we would rather be safe than sorry. I have Lupus SLE and other autoimmune diseases as well as we both have Type 2 Diabetes, and the side effects we had with the Moderna vaccine were soreness in the arm and being more tired than usual for a couple of weeks each time, but to us that was not bad as opposed to not getting the vaccines. Hugs and prayers to all. Be safe and God bless.
I think 1 big problem is the people that are just starting to have the first of 2 vaccinations are pushing the boundaries of some of the rules & possibly causing more issues etc.
Because of all of my medical conditions & low immune system, if I go out I’m still wearing my mask. I’m sure I get looked at but I really don’t care.
I just hope that we don’t take a HUGE STEP backwards just because of people flouting the rules. I also hope that they don’t blame Boris. I think he’s done as much as possible to keep the country safe. Will we have another lockdown??
I personally think we will but only time will tell.
The warnings about the Delta variant becoming the dominant variant and causing more outbreaks WHERE PEOPLE ARE UNVACCINATED and a return to mask wearing, have become a louder drum beat.
I'm grateful for the members on here who have written about how seriously they take this.
Immunologists and virologists are declaring that due to variants increasing in contagiousness due to unvaccinated people here and around the world, that we will be living with this virus for the next 2 to 3 years.
There are people in the United States that live in rural communities that have not been offered much in the way of availability (basic access, transportation) and education of it and I believe that is currently being more addressed. I hope what is also being addressed is the misinformation regarding it and the conspiracy theories.
There are people in other countries that have zero access to it and every morning I wake up and I count my blessings.
My husband and I have had our first Vaccination AstraZeneca.
It will be 12 weeks before we can get the second Vaccination. For me I feel 12 weeks is far too long, that they should put it back to 8 weeks.
Reactions to the first Vaccine was a sore arm, very fatigued and continually having the sniffles.
Always have a Flu Vaccination as well we had that a couple of weeks before the Covid-19 Vaccine.
Had worse symptoms with the Flu Shot, my glands in my neck were swollen, sore arm for a week. Because in Australia it is Winter Time.
Just wondering how the Second AstraZeneca Vaccine shot will be like, with side effects.
We will be wearing masks because in Australia we also have the Delta Strain Variant here, keeping our distance and using Hand Sanitizer.
Have been told that we all have to live with Covid-19 even with Vaccinations. That Every Year we will have to have a Booster Shot of Covid-19 Vaccine like we have a Booster Shot of the Flu Vaccine.
Everyone please stay safe and sound.
