COVID-19 vaccine FAQs

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Coconino County Health Department provides answers to some frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Q: Do I need to keep wearing a mask after getting the vaccine?

A: Yes. While experts learn more about the vaccine and the protections it provides, it will be important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to us to help stop the spread. We need to keep up physical distancing, washing hands often, and wearing a mask.

Q: What do we know about the time frame for the general population to receive vaccinations?

A: We expect the emphasis to remain on Phase 1a and 1b for the time being. Although we don’t have more specific timelines, Coconino County estimates Phase 1c vaccinations (including adults over 65, individuals with underlying medical conditions, and adults in congregate settings) will occur in the Spring of 2021. The County estimates vaccinations for the general population will occur during Spring and Summer of 2021, and beyond.
