Our fastest way back to normal is by encouraging all North Dakotans to get vaccinated. Wearing masks, hand washing, and distancing are helpful for slowing the spread of COVID-19, but they aren’t enough to get us safely to herd immunity, when 85% of people are immune.
Vaccine for Low-Risk Groups
Both the CDC and local experts recommend vaccination for all, even those who are not part of at-risk groups and those who have already had COVID-19. Doing so ensures the safety of high-risk individuals unable to be vaccinated.
At BCBSND, we are working with the North Dakota Department of Health to encourage all North Dakotans to get vaccinated. We are ensuring that our members get no-cost access and helping to educate the public on vaccine safety and effectiveness .
