Are You Fully Vaccinated?
You are considered “fully vaccinated” two weeks after receiving the complete dose of your vaccine. If you receive the 2-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, then you are “fully vaccinated” two weeks after your second dose. If you receive a single-dose vaccine like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine, you will be fully vaccinated two weeks after your shot. If it has been less than two weeks or if you are still waiting for your second dose, you are NOT fully protected.
Even after you are fully vaccinated, you should continue to protect yourself and others by following safe practices whenever you are near unvaccinated people outside of your own household. This means continuing to: wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet apart and avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces.
