Docsun Biomed Report on 5 Tips for a Safer Holiday Period during the COVID 19 Pandemic
By: WHO and CDC
1. Get your full course of vaccinations as soon as possible
Getting vaccinated with the complete series of available doses is the most important thing people can do to be protected from severe disease and death from COVID-19. This is especially important for at-risk groups such as those aged 60 years and above, and for people with underlying health conditions.
Most people needing critical hospital care for COVID-19 are unvaccinated. Current vaccines offer protection against severe disease and death from COVID-19 variants, including Delta. While evidence is still emerging, current vaccines should also protect against severe disease from the new Omicron variant.
2. Take other personal preventive measures to help stay safe and keep societies open
Combining vaccination with the other available preventive measures this winter helps us to live our lives while controlling the virus and avoiding widespread lockdowns.
Indoor gatherings, even smaller ones, can give the virus an opportunity to spread. Gatherings and celebrations should be held outside if possible, and those meeting up should wear masks and maintain physical distance. If held indoors, limiting group size and ensuring good ventilation by opening a door or window when safe to do so are key to reducing the risk of exposure.
4. Avoid traveling if you are at risk
All travelers should remain vigilant for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, get vaccinated when it is their turn and adhere to preventive measures at all times, regardless of their vaccination status.
5. Get informed from trusted sources
Misinformation and disinformation put people's health and lives at risk, undermine trust in science, and impede making the right decisions about our health. Seek out reliable information sources that provide advice based on the latest evidence and scientific consensus.
