Guidance for fully vaccinated people

COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. Based on what health officials know about COVID-19 vaccines, they say people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic. Health officials are still learning how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. After you’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions — like wearing a mask, staying six feet apart from others, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces and taking care in public places until more is known. The following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can help you make decisions about daily activities after you are fully vaccinated:

You can:

  • Visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with other fully vaccinated people of any age
  • Visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with one household of unvaccinated people who are not at risk for severe illness
  • Travel domestically without a pre- or post-travel test
  • Travel domestically without quarantining after travel
  • Travel internationally without a pre-travel test depending on destination
  • Travel internationally without quarantining after travel

You shouldn’t:

  • Visit indoors, without a mask, with people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19
  • Attend large gatherings
