If I receive the vaccine will I still need to mask and wear eye protection and social distance?

Because the vaccines do not offer 100% protection and we do not know if the vaccines prevent asymptomatic infection, PPE for healthcare workers and continued precautions for the general public are recommended. Everyone should wear face masks, wash their hands frequently, practice social distancing, and take other safety steps until more people have received the vaccine, the number of COVID-19 cases nationwide is no longer at pandemic levels, and we understand more about how long these vaccines will protect us.
