Benefits of Getting Vaccinated

  • COVID-19 vaccination will help keep you from getting COVID-19
  • Once you are fully vaccinated, you can start doing more:
    • Visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with other fully vaccinated people
    • Visit inside a home or private setting without a mask with one household of unvaccinated people of any age who are not at risk of severe illness
    • Travel domestically and internationally without a pre or post travel test
    • Travel domestically and internationally without quarantining after travel
    • If you have been fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine and it’s been at least 14 days since your final dose, you are no longer required to quarantine if you have had close contact with someone with COVID-19.  
  • COVID-19 vaccination is a safer way to help build protection. COVID-19 can have serious, life-threatening, complications and there is no way to know how COVID-19 will affect you. And if you get sick, you could spread the disease to friends, family, and others around you.
  • COVID-10 vaccinations are an important tool to help stop the pandemic
  •  None of the COVID-19 vaccines can make you sick with COVID-19
