The Delta variant of the coronavirus has been in the news a lot lately. Here’s what we know:
The best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the Delta variant is to get vaccinated. If you’ve already gotten one dose of either Pfizer or Moderna, be sure to get your second dose. To find a vaccine provider near you, go to vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov.
The more the coronavirus spreads, the more likely it is to mutate into a variant that can evade our vaccines. Stopping the virus now is the best way to prevent future, more dangerous mutations.
