When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated: How to Protect Yourself and Others
Central District continues to require masks to be worn properly and continuously on its premises and at our COVID-19 vaccination clinics. By wearing your mask, you are protecting staff and volunteers who work tirelessly to defeat COVID-19.
Masks protect You: Masks protect me
CDHD recommends that people continue to wear masks in public settings, at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people. Effective February 2, 2021, masks are 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. For more information, see: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/about-face-coverings.html
Clarification of the Interval between first and second doses of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 shots.
The mRNA COVID-19 vaccine series consist of two doses:
- Pfizer: 3 weeks (21 days) apart
- Moderna: 1 month (28 days) apart
Persons should not be scheduled to receive the second dose earlier than recommended (i.e., 3 weeks [Pfizer] or 1 month [Moderna]). However, second doses administered within a grace period of 4 days earlier than the recommended date for the second dose are still considered valid. Doses inadvertently administered earlier than the grace period should not be repeated.
The shot should be given as close to the recommended interval as possible. However, if a delay in vaccination is unavoidable, the second dose of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be administered up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose.

News & Notes
A new CDC study adds to the growing body of real-world evidence (outside of a clinical trial setting) showing that COVID-19 mRNA vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) protect health care personnel (HCP) against COVID-19. mRNA vaccines (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna) reduced the risk of getting sick with COVID-19 by 94% among HCP who were fully vaccinated.
