Frequently Asked Questions

Can people who are vaccinated still spread COVID-19 to others? For example, is there a chance they "carry" the infection but wouldn't know?

Experts don’t yet know whether people who are vaccinated can still spread the virus that causes COVID-19. To protect others, you’ll need to continue following COVID-19 prevention guidelines even after you’ve been vaccinated. That includes covering your mouth and nose with a mask, staying six feet away from others, and washing your hands frequently. This can also protect you, since it’s not yet known how long protection provided by the vaccine lasts.
