Every person who gets vaccinated brings us one tiny step closer to a world with less COVID in it. That’s why it’s great news that protection from the disease begins before you’ve gotten your second dose and that the vaccine seems to be safe and effective in kids. But we all still have lots of questions, and I’d like to hear yours.
The CDC’s official advice on what you can do after you’re vaccinated leaves a lot of gaps and grey areas. My own friends and family have voiced a number of dilemmas in the past few weeks. Should kids still wear masks when they play together if the adults in their lives are all vaccinated? Is it any safer to fly now than it was before? What should you do if you’re vaccinated but high risk, or you’re vaccinated but you live with someone who is high risk?

For upcoming installments of Vaccine Watch, I’d like to ask experts your real-world questions about things that aren’t covered or aren’t clear in the official advice. Are you negotiating holiday ground rules for a family that includes vaccinated and unvaccinated people? Making a list of the things you want to do once you get the vaccine? Wondering if any opportunities are opening up now that all your friends are vaccinated, even though you’re not?
Ask your questions in the comments below, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line COVID QUESTION and I’ll badger experts for their take on all the things you’re wondering about.
