If you have had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) or an immediate allergic reaction to any ingredient in the vaccine you are scheduled to receive, you should not get that vaccine. If you have been instructed not to get one type of COVID-19 vaccine, you may still be able to get another type. Learn more information for people with allergies.
CDC Guidance after Vaccination
COVID-19 vaccines are proven effective at protecting you from getting sick. The CDC has shared updated guidance for those who have completed their COVID-19 vaccination series. Based on what public health professionals know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic. Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
It’s vital that Oklahomans continue to take the necessary steps to protect themselves and others from COVID-19. These actions, in conjunction with the vaccine plan, will make a huge difference in keeping our families and communities safe and healthy in the long term.
If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, schedule your appointment.
