With the COVID-19 vaccine rollout underway in the US, the 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).

While the recommendations were highly anticipated, patients (fully vaccinated or not) might still ask their health care provider questions regarding when to take precautions, what gatherings they can or cannot attend, and more. In the slides below, find questions that you might be asked by patients and the answers to help you prepare.
