I’ve Had My Second Shot Now What Do I Do?

Posted: March 25, 2021

The Centers for Disease Control released guidelines on March 8 explaining how those fully vaccinated can do some things they stopped doing because of the pandemic.

The guidance allows those who are fully vaccinated to gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask and gather with unvaccinated people from one other household  without masks, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

NorthBay Chief Medical Officer Seth Kaufman, M.D., told viewers of his every-other-week Facebook chat on COVID that he would be careful with the new guidelines.

“If you are fully vaccinated, I wouldn’t take this as a signal to just rip off your mask,” he said. “Be careful with the guidelines because we are seeing breakthrough infections of people getting sick even though they are vaccinated.”

His advice is to get vaccinated but still maintain precautionary measures, including wearing a mask.

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky told the Washington Post that the recommendations sought to balance risk to those who are unvaccinated against the benefit of “getting back to some of the things that we love in life” for those who are inoculated.
