For some, this may be very uncomfortable. However, it is an important step to keep everyone safe.

5. Vaccinate ASAP
If you qualify, get vaccinated as soon as possible. Find the nearest health facility (faskes) contact or information on the mass vaccination program in the area where you live.
The entry of the Delta variant makes a way to protect yourself from serious Covid-19 infections by vaccination and implementing health protocols.
