Key Things to Know about COVID-19 Vaccines

Everyone ages 12 and older is recommended to get a COVID-19 vaccination. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective, and the federal government is providing the vaccine for free to anyone living in the United States. You are not fully vaccinated until 2 weeks after the 2nd dose of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after a one-dose vaccine. People who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.

Domestic Travel During COVID-19

Delay travel until you are fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, take the following steps to protect yourself and others from COVID-19:

  • Get tested with a viral test 1-3 days before your trip. Get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.
  • If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • Wear a mask over your nose and mouth, avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet from anyone who is not traveling with you.
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Wearing a mask is required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States and in U.S. transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
