CDC Guidance for Vaccinated Individuals
The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention announced updated guidance for fully vaccinated individuals. You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your final vaccine dose. This updated guidance, in part, says vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a face covering indoors/outdoors or stay six feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance. At UIS, we do not require fully vaccinated individuals to wear a face covering, except in certain settings (see Our Approach to Safety page). Non-vaccinated individuals are required to wear a face covering at UIS, unless they are outside and able to maintain six feet of distance from others.
Types of Vaccine
There are three brands of vaccine available to the public: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Janssen/Johnson & Johnson. For information on these vaccines, please visit the websites listed below. Additional brands of vaccine may become available for distribution as the FDA approves them for public use.
