Can I stop wearing a mask after getting a COVID-19 vaccine?
While the coronavirus vaccine should prevent you from getting sick, health experts don’t know yet if it will prevent you from spreading the virus.
For a couple reasons, masks and social distancing will still be recommended for some time after people are vaccinated.
1. FULL PROTECTION
The first coronavirus vaccines require two shots; Pfizer’s second dose comes three weeks after the first and Moderna’s comes after four weeks. And the effects of vaccinations generally aren’t immediate. People are expected to get some level of protection within a couple of weeks after the first shot. But full protection may not happen until a couple weeks after the second shot.
It’s also not yet known whether the vaccines protect people from infection entirely, or just from symptoms. That means vaccinated people might still be able to get infected and pass the virus on, although it would likely be at a much lower rate, said Deborah Fuller, a vaccine expert at the University of Washington.
VLA Comment: So it is not known if those who get the vaccine “shed” the virus and be a spreader. So, why aren’t the millions of people getting the vaccine being QUARANTINED?
