The most recent update was on June 29, 2021

COVID-19 vaccinations have been shown in studies to be effective in preventing COVID-19 infection. Even if you do contract COVID-19, getting vaccinated against it will help you avoid becoming extremely ill. Defending yourself also protects those around you, such as those who are at higher risk of serious sickness from COVID-19 or who are unable to get vaccinated — such as infants — or those with weaker immune systems due to cancer chemotherapy.

Another advantage is that once you’ve been completely vaccinated against COVID-19, you can continue many of the activities you did before the epidemic without wearing a mask.

Is it still necessary for me to wear a mask once I’ve been fully vaccinated?

You can resume numerous activities without needing to wear a mask or stay six feet away from people if you’ve been completely vaccinated. Because mask-wearing requirements vary by location, you should check with your local governments, businesses, and workplaces to discover what they now demand.

Even if you’re traveling, you should take precautions to keep yourself and others safe. On flights, buses, trains, and other kinds of public transit traveling into, through, or out of the United States, as well as in U.S. transportation hubs like airports and stations, you must still wear a mask.

Should I wear a mask because I’m not completely vaccinated?

Yes, indeed. It’s best to keep taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated, which is 2 weeks after your final vaccine dose (2 weeks after a single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or 2 weeks after the second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines). Please continue to wear a mask, wash your hands frequently with soap and water, and keep a distance of 6 feet between you and anyone who do not reside with you. Following these precautions until you are completely immunized can help you and others stay safe.
