With the availability of the vaccine does this mean the pandemic is over?

No. Even with a vaccine, the pandemic will not end immediately. It will take time for the vaccine to be widely available. And even then a majority of people will need to receive the vaccine to help prevent the spread of the virus. We must continue using other strategies such as wearing a mask and handwashing.
