CDC Guidelines for Fully Vaccinated People
On Monday, March 8, 2021, the CDC issued new guidelines for anyone that has been fully vaccinated. People are considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated.When to Quarantine
