Start doing more things safely

If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you can start doing many things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic. When choosing safer activities, consider how COVID-19 is spreading in your community, the number of people participating in the activity, and the location of the activity.

Outdoor visits and activities are safer than indoor activities, and fully vaccinated people can participate in some indoor events safely, without much risk.

We’re still learning how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. After you’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions—like wearing a mask in indoor public places and avoiding indoor large-sized in-person gatherings—until we know more.

If you have not gotten vaccinated yet, scroll to the bottom of this newsletter to learn more about how to find a vaccine.

Find a vaccine

Everyone 16 years of age and older is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccination. Get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help stop the pandemic. To find a vaccine, you can
  • Use the VaccineFinder to find vaccination providers near you.
  • Check your local health department
  • Check your local pharmacy’s website to see if vaccination appointments are available.
  • Check your local news outlets. They may have information on how to get a vaccination appointment.
