The vaccine is available for everyone 16 and up here in Michigan and in most parts of the country.

It's free and you can get Pfizer or Moderna. And they just released the pause on the Johnson and Johnson one dose shot.

Word is two weeks after both doses (or the one dose from J&J), you are fully vaccinated.

And the CDC is saying, you're part of an exclusive club that can get back to enjoying your life without the mask (or certain prevention measures).

Now before we go on, it is still recommended you practice wearing you face mask, social distancing, washing your hands and so on. We're not saying once you get fully vaccinated you don't have to follow the rules or suggestions. Follow the CDC guidelines listed HERE.

But if you have been fully vaccinated, you are cleared to do certain things without your mask.

  • Walk, run, or bike outdoors with members of your household
  • Attend a small, outdoor gathering with fully vaccinated family and friends
  • Attend a small, outdoor gathering with fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people
  • Dine at an outdoor restaurant with friends from multiple households  (CDC)

They've even put together a handy chart to let you know what you can and can't do (with or without a mask) and depending on if you're fully vaccinated or not.

You can peep that chart here or check out the information on their Twitter account below.

If you're wanting to get back to normal and doing the things you want to do without restrictions, please get the vaccine. Both doses (unless you're taking Johnson and Johnson).
