When Are You Completely Vaccinated?
It’s essential to clarify the timeline when you are considered fully vaccinated, according to health officials. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that you meet the requirements as fully vaccinated:
· Two weeks following a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, OR
· Two weeks following your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine
If you only have one shot of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, then you haven’t reached the point of complete vaccination yet – but you are nearing the finish line.
Health and Safety Guidelines After Vaccination
Because the pandemic conditions are often changing, make sure to stay current with the latest guidelines from the CDC. Since information is evolving, these recommendations may change as we learn more about the effectiveness of the vaccines in ending the pandemic.
Here are a few things you might choose to do after you are fully vaccinated:
· Gather in small groups with people outside of your household, without masks
· Spend time with other people who are fully vaccinated
· Avoid large groups, especially with people who aren’t vaccinated yet
Do You Still Need to Wear a Mask?
Keep in mind that the vaccine reduces the risk that you will develop COVID-19. If a vaccinated person tests positive, then the vaccine minimizes the severity and symptoms of this disease.
Can you still spread Covid-19 after being vaccinated? Although open to debate, it may be best to think an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. If you are spending time with family and friends who are not yet vaccinated, then to maximize safety for your loved ones and why place them at risk, experts are advising to keep wearing your mask in this situation.
The risk of complications is exceptionally high for others over the age of 65+ or who have health conditions (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.). So, it’s recommended to continue wearing a mask and maintaining social distancing when you are around other unvaccinated people.
