Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People

Please see the UPDATED Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People (updated as of May 13, 2021) found at the following link: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html#print

 

The CDC announcement today on masks shows the important benefits of vaccinations. North Carolina two weeks ago removed the outdoor mask mandate, but the indoor mask mandate remains in effect while we review the specific CDC recommendations.

For details about current indoor mask requirements, please see the Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQ”) for Executive Order No. 209: https://files.nc.gov/governor/documents/files/EO-No.-209-FAQ.pdf  

 

Below is a quick at-a-glance for “Choosing Safer Activities” found in the guidance referenced above.

Choosing Safer Activities

  




Vaccine Safety


Great care has been taken to ensure COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.

Scientists had a head start. Although the vaccines were developed quickly, they were built upon years of work in developing vaccines for similar viruses.

Testing was thorough and successful.  More than 70,000 people participated in clinical trials for two vaccines to see if they are safe and effective.  To date, the vaccines are nearly 95% effective in preventing COVID-19 with no safety concerns.

There is no COVID-19 virus in the vaccine. The vaccine imitates the infection so that our bodies think a germ like the virus is attacking.  This creates the antibody defenses we need to fight off COVID-19 if and when the real germ attacks.

No major side effects. Some people may have temporary reactions after being vaccinated, such as swelling from the injection, tiredness or feeling off for a day or two.
