60 Second Audio Transcript - The Waiting

(Sound effects: music in the background)

Voiceover: We’ve been waiting. Waiting for COVID-19 vaccines to be developed. Now, waiting for them to get to us.

But, you can do more than wait: you have powerful ways to help slow the spread right now and protect your family and loved ones too. Here’s how:

“Watch your distance”— Stay at least 6 feet away from folks you don’t live with, and it’s risky to be indoors with them, too. And of course, avoid crowds.

Also, “Wear a mask”— CDC reports masks protect the people who wear them and the folks around them.

And “Wash your hands”— using soap and water for 20 seconds. And do it frequently.

Vaccines won’t make COVID go away overnight, but they give us a real chance to finally overcome it as long as we keep watching our distance, wearing our masks, and washing our hands.

Announcer voiceover: Learn more about vaccines at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus. Brought to you by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
