When Can You Travel After Being Vaccinated?

After getting vaccinated, your first thought may be to plan a trip — but you may want to pause before booking a ticket. The vaccine takes at least a couple weeks after the second dose to fully kick in, so be sure to hold off on immediately traveling. Though immunity will eventually set in, keep in mind that you could still potentially spread the virus. When planning, take into account who you’ll see along the way and consider the overall risk-level of the trip. Doctors have recommended avoiding destinations with positive rates of 5% or more, even if you’re vaccinated. If you do travel, it's important to continue social distancing, wearing masks, and consistently washing your hands.
