People are considered to be fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine or two weeks after the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, according to the CDC. The CDC says people who have been fully vaccinated can:

■ Gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart.

■ Gather indoors with unvaccinat­ed people of any age from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks or staying 6 feet apart, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

■ Travel in the United States without a COVID-19 test before or after travel, and without quarantini­ng after travel.

■ Travel internatio­nally without quarantini­ng after travel (and without a test depending on destinatio­n)

If you’ve been fully vaccinated, the CDC says you should still protect yourself and others by wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet apart from others:

■ In public

■ When gathering with unvaccinat­ed people from more than one other household.

■ When visiting with an unvaccinat­ed person who is at increased risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 or who lives with a person at increased risk.

The CDC also still recommends that everyone avoid medium- and large-sized gatherings and get tested and stay home and away from others if you have symptoms of COVID-19.
