/Do I need to wear a mask when I receive a COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes. Wearing a mask is still recommended during the pandemic. We do know that the vaccine has been shown to protect the people who receive it; however, we do not have enough information to know if it protects those who haven’t been vaccinated. It is important to continue to wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth when in contact with others outside your household, when you are in a health care facility, and when receiving any vaccine, including a COVID-19 vaccine. For more information, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has more information at Considerations for Wearing Masks.
