Vaccinations take several weeks to have a preventive effect
Steve Brown, Director of Public Health Devon gives this advice: The vaccination protects those who have had it from becoming seriously ill with coronavirus. However, there is no evidence yet to suggest that the vaccination stops a person from actually catching the virus, nor therefore prevents them from transmitting the virus to others.
Even when you have had the vaccination, you still need to follow the public health measures and continue to take steps to minimise the risk of spreading the virus.
That means, keep up with social distancing, wearing of face coverings when in public spaces, and washing your hands properly and regularly. Please continue to stay at home and avoid unnecessary journeys out of the house.
