CDC Guidance for Fully Vaccinated Persons: Part 2


Although the COVID-19 vaccine rollout is well underway, situations might arise that could be cause for inquiry. For example, if a patient is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, what should they do if exposed by a co-worker? If they live in a group home and are exposed by a fellow resident, do they still need to quarantine?

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released the first set of public health recommendations for fully vaccinated persons. For the purpose of the guidance, the CDC considered people fully vaccinated for COVID-19 ≥2 weeks after they received the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or ≥2 weeks after they received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen). In part 2 of our series on the CDC guidance below, find more questions you may be asked by patients and the answers to help you prepare.
