Watching countries ahead of us in their vaccine roll-out achieve days where new case numbers don’t rise above 10, it is important to know that they are using a Vaccines+ strategy. This means high levels of population vaccination plus travel restrictions, indoor mask wearing and other measures, in particular those right now aimed at preventing re-seeding by variants of concern like Delta.

Join ISAG team members this Wednesday, when we will answer any questions about the science, where we are now in the pandemic.
