First: What does it mean to be fully vaccinated? People are considered fully
vaccinated for COVID-19 two weeks after they have received the second dose
in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or two weeks after they have
received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen).
According to new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention, fully vaccinated people can:
- Visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing
- Visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing
- Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if asymptomatic
For now, fully vaccinated people should continue to:
- Take precautions in public like wearing a well-fitted mask and physical distancing
- Avoid medium- and large-sized in-person gatherings
- Get tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
If you are fully vaccinated and not sure what to do or you are not sure if
someone near you is at risk for severe COVID-19, keep your mask on and
