US CDC: Fully Vaccinated Meeting Criteria No Longer Required to Quarantine After Exposure

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued new guidance (02/10/21) that people who have been fully vaccinated for the coronavirus no longer need to quarantine if they are exposed to someone who is infected with COVID-19. 

The U.S. CDC regularly updates interim clinical considerations for use of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines currently authorized in the United States. The most recent update includes udated quarantine recommendations for vaccinated persons. Fully vaccinated persons who meet criteria will no longer be required to quarantine following an exposure to someone with COVID-19. 

Additional changes: 

· New recommendations for preventing, reporting, and managing mRNA COVID-19 vaccine administration errors. 

· Clarification on contraindications and precautions. Persons with a known (diagnosed) allergy to PEG, another mRNA vaccine component, or polysorbate, have a contraindication to vaccination. Persons with a reaction to a vaccine or injectable therapy that contains multiple components, one of which is PEG, another mRNA vaccine component or polysorbate, but in whom it is unknown which component elicited the immediate allergic reaction have a precaution to vaccination. 

· Updated information on delayed, local injection-site reactions after the first mRNA vaccine dose. These reactions are neither a contraindication or precaution to the second dose. 

· Additional information and updated recommendations for testing for TB infection. TB testing can be done before or at the same time as mRNA COVID-19 vaccination, or otherwise delayed for ≥4 weeks after the completion of mRNA COVID-19 vaccination.
