Andrea Mitchell Urges People to Keep Wearing Masks, Social Distancing After Covid Vaccine Is Distributed

‘That does not mean for months to come we shouldn’t be wearing masks, washing hands and keeping a safe distance’

EXCERPT:

MITCHELL: “Dr. Slaoui, let me -- let me just reemphasize what you just said. Because even as they get distributed to frontline and elderly and other vulnerable people first, that does not mean that for months to come we shouldn’t be wearing masks, washing hands and keeping a safe distance. Correct?”
SLAOUI: “Exactly. Absolutely. It’s in addition to. The vaccine is going to help us get back to some level of normalcy. The vaccine will really become effective and we can go back to total normalcy when the overwhelming majority of people have been immunized and the circulation of the virus will go down.”
