While the vaccine brings hope and encouragement, it is still going to take time to get everyone vaccinated. The CDC has issued guidance for those who are fully vaccinated (two weeks past the final vaccine dose). The most recent guidance can be found here.

If you have specific questions related to the vaccine and your individual health, it is always a good idea to talk with your Primary Care Provider as they know your health history best and can help you make the best decision.
