What does “fully vaccinated” mean?
Fully vaccinated means that an individual has received the COVID-19 vaccine and is 14 days past receiving the vaccine's last dose. If a student received Pfizer or Moderna, they must be 14 days past the second dose. If a student received Johnson & Johnson, they must be 14 days past the vaccine's single dose.

Does a fully vaccinated person have to quarantine if they come into contact with a COVID positive person?
No. Per CDC and ADH guidelines, an individual who is fully vaccinated does not have to quarantine if they come into contact with a COVID-positive person. The only exception to that guideline is that if the fully vaccinated person becomes symptomatic, they will have to quarantine.

Why are Nurse Rhonda and Lea Hart collecting student records of the COVID-19 vaccination?
Right now, if a vaccinated student is exposed to a COVID-positive student, they are not required to go in to quarantine per the CDC and ADH guidelines. Consequently, Nurse Rhonda and Lea Hart, the coordinator of student COVID care, have begun to record students who are vaccinated, so the COVID Care Team does not have to contact them emergently if a student becomes ill has been around them unmasked or not adequately socially distanced. 

Nurse Rhonda and Lea Hart are collecting vaccine records to have students who have received the vaccine on record in case of COVID vaccine policy changes. Knowing how many people on-campus have been vaccinated helps the administration discuss changes to COVID masking and distancing policies.
