Getting vaccinated prevents serious illness, hospitalization, and death; it also helps reduce the spread of COVID-19.

  • Since COVID-19 vaccination began, nearly all Texas COVID-19 deaths are among people who are not fully vaccinated. 
  • Like any vaccine, COVID-19 vaccines cannot stop 100% of infections, but they do protect most people.  
  • While rare, breakthrough cases where fully vaccinated people get COVID-19 are expected but fully vaccinated people are much less likely to get seriously sick.  
  • Full vaccination is the best defense against COVID-19 and its variants.

With the Delta variant, vaccination is more urgent than ever. Data show Delta is different than past versions of the virus: it is much more contagious and people with breakthrough infections may spread it.

  • Wearing a mask in indoor pubic settings, regardless of vaccination status, helps protect you and everyone close to you. 
  • CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.
