The CDC announced new guidelines on Monday for people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
The new guidance says people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely visit with other vaccinated people, and with small groups of vaccinated people in certain circumstances. Important safety precautions are still needed.
People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or two weeks after their single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
About 30 million Americans, roughly 9% of the U.S. population, have been fully vaccinated with a federally authorized COVID-19 vaccine according to the CDC.
