Since vaccinations became available to all Indiana adults age 16 and older on March 31st, we have students who have been or are in the process of being vaccinated. According to the CDC, COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick and individuals who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things differently. For now, if your student has been fully vaccinated, the mask requirements in school and extracurricular has not changed. However, if your student is fully vaccinated and has been around someone who has COVID-19, they are not required to quarantine unless they have symptoms.
NOTE: If your student has a condition or is taking medications that weaken their immune system, they may NOT be fully protected even if they are fully vaccinated. Talk to your healthcare provider. Even after vaccination, you may need to continue taking all precautions.
Have You Been Fully Vaccinated?
In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second does in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
If you don’t meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated. Keep taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated.
