Psaki: Social Distancing and Masks Will Be 'Essential' Even After You're Vaccinated

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki wants you to know that even if you receive the vaccination against COVID-19, it doesn't mean you're off the hook for....well, all the other ridiculous stuff we've had to do for the last year.

During a White House press briefing Thursday, Psaki reiterated that even after you've gotten the shot, wearing masks and social distancing will be "essential."

“It’s not just a vaccine. It’s obviously an incredible medical breakthrough and we want every American to have one,” she said. 

"But even after you’re vaccinated, social distancing and wearing masks are gonna be essential, and we’re gonna have to keep communicating that,” Psaki said.

For how long? She didn't say. Because apparently, no one knows.
