The states with the most Covid are states. where people have been told by their preferred politicians and media outlets that masks are useless or an insult to their personal liberty. Tragically this means that those who have believed this and used masks less are now suffering and even dying as a result. In spite of our Governor's heroic efforts, Ohio is a state in crisis. It is within our power to avoid further sickness and death.
The vaccines are based on a new technology that stimulates the body to make its own proteins which stimulate the immune system to make antibodies. They do not get into your DNA and cause any harm. Once vaccinated, you are not immediately immune. It takes time for those antibodies to be made. Until enough people are vaccinated, IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE VERY IMPORTANT TO USE MASKS FOR MONTHS TO COME, REGARDLESS OF THE VACCINES.
