Asking for a Friend

If I have my COVID vaccine jab, can I stop wearing a mask and not worry so much about social distancing and washing my hands?

No, it is important that you continue to wear a mask, keep 2m away from others as much as you can and wash your hands thoroughly several times a day. But especially after using public transport, touching door handles, stair rails, lift buttons, key pads, cash point buttons and any surface that other people touch. The vaccine means that you have a low risk of catching the coronavirus (76% protection) but you can still spread it to others if you pick it up. So remember: hands, face, space at all times.
