Vaccination rates in Weston are high and we're making great progress against COVID-19. However, many people are traveling this summer to places where vaccination rates are lower and we know that the virus transmits easily.
While COVID-19 cases are rising across the country the vast majority (96-98%) of individuals hospitalized with complications from infection are unvaccinated. We continue to actively monitor infections and are working with all individuals who test positive to help stop the spread of Coronavirus in and around Weston. Please call 781-786-5033 or email COVIDquestions@WestonMA.gov with questions or concerns about COVID-19.
Vaccines are safe and are one of the best ways to protect yourself and those around you from getting sick from COVID-19.
The vaccine doesn’t contain the virus that causes COVID-19, so it can’t make you sick. You may experience mild side effects after getting the vaccine, but this is a sign that your body is learning how to protect you.
Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines from the state Department of Public Health, including why it's safe and a comprehensive FAQ on what to expect before and after receiving the vaccine such as who administers the dose, what the potential side effects are, and what to expect after the vaccine has been administered to phase 3 recipients.
Do you have questions about the vaccines for COVID-19? Connect with Weston's public health nurses via email at COVIDquestions@WestonMA.gov or phone at 781-786-5033 for a confidential conversation or reach out to your own physician.
