Will the vaccine protect me against the Delta variant?

Yes – current vaccines provide at least some protection against the Delta variant.

According to multiple studies (outlined here), the protection against Delta varies among vaccines. The studies estimate that the J&J vaccine is more than 67% effective, Moderna between 72 and 95% effective, and Pfizer-BioNTech between 42 and 96% effective.

In addition to protecting people from contracting new variants, the vaccine is shown to reduce severity of infections and shorten recovery time. Most importantly, all three vaccines continue to provide strong protection against severe disease, hospitalizations and death from COVID-19. In fact, according to one study, vaccines are 95% effective at keeping people out of the hospital.

Bottom line? The vaccine is the best shield we have to prevent infections, reduce severity, and keep people out of hospitals.  Find out where you can get vaccinated here
