Centers for Disease Control Lists Recommendations for Those Fully Vaccinated for COVID-19
By Space Coast Daily // August 1, 2021
Outdoor activities pose minimal risk to fully vaccinated people
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The spike in COVID-19 cases has focused a lot of attention on those who have not been vaccinated.
Ample supplies of vaccines are available at the Florida Department of Health-Brevard, area pharmacies, urgent cares centers, and from your private physician. Residents who are ages 12 and older are recommended to get vaccinated.
UPDATED: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has provided guidance for individuals fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
Individuals are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 two or more weeks after they have received the second dose in a two-dose series (Moderna and Pfizer vaccine require two doses) or two or more weeks after they have received a single-dose vaccine (Janssen/Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine).
Here is an overview of the CDC Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated people:
■ Participate in many of the activities they did before the pandemic; for some of these activities, they may choose to wear a mask.
■ Outdoor activities pose minimal risk to fully vaccinated people
■ Most indoor activities pose a low risk to fully vaccinated people, especially in areas with low or moderate transmission.
■ Refrain from quarantine and testing following a known exposure if they remain asymptomatic.
■ Resume domestic travel and refrain from testing before or after travel of self-quarantine after travel.
■ Refrain from testing before leaving the United States for international travel (unless required by the destination) and refrain from self-quarantine after arriving back in the United States.
■ Refrain from routine screening testing if asymptomatic and feasible.
Fully vaccinated individuals should continue to:
■ Wear a mask in public indoor settings if they are in an area of substantial or high transmission,
■ Fully vaccinated people might choose to mask regardless of the level of transmission, particularly if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised or at increased risk of severe disease, or if someone in their household is unvaccinated.
■ People who are at increased risk for severe disease include older adults and those who have certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, overweight or obesity, and heart conditions.
■ Practice hand and respiratory hygiene.
■ Get tested if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
■ Get tested 3-5 days following known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 and wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days after exposure or until a negative test result.
■ Isolate if they have tested positive for COVID-19 in the prior 10 days or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
■ Follow guidance issued by individual employers.
■ Follow travel requirements and recommendations.
Fully vaccinated individuals should continue to watch for symptoms of COVID-19.
Regardless of vaccination status, if symptoms develop, individuals should isolate and be evaluated for COVID-19, including SARS-CoV-2 testing if indicated.
Fully vaccinated people who become infected with the Delta variant can transmit it to others. Infections happen in only a small proportion of people who are fully vaccinated, even the Delta variant.
