Covid-19 is a lot like the Energizer Bunny: it just keeps going, and going, and going... and so do our questions about it!

Welcome to yet another monthly megathread for Covid-19. We get so many questions every month about it, like "If you get Covid, are you as protected from it as if you had the vaccine?" or "Are there anti-vaxxers outside the US?" ..and many of them are repeats. So we made a megathread where you can ask these questions!

Post all your Covid-19 related questions as a top level reply to this monthly post.

  • Be civil to each other - which includes not discriminating against any group of people or using slurs of any kind. Topics like this can be very important to people, or even a matter of life and death, so let's not add fuel to the fire.
