When you’ve been fully vaccinated
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released new guidance for those who are fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated means two weeks after the second dose for Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines or two weeks after the first and only dose of the Janssen vaccine.
COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
If you’ve been fully vaccinated, you can:
- Gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask.
- Gather indoors with unvaccinated people from one other household without masks, unless any of those people or anyone they live with is at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
