The full benefits of immunity are not reached until two weeks after the second dose of the vaccine, so as cases of COVID continue to rise, Tribal Health reminds everyone that it is critical now to physically distance, wear a mask and wash your hands. Also, minimize gatherings, and delay travel if possible.
