US officials say Covid-19 vaccines are our way out of the pandemic.
The Biden administration is expected to announce as early as Tuesday several new recommendations for fully vaccinated people, including "unmasking outdoors," one federal official told CNN.
The new recommendations will offer "guidelines for activities fully vaccinated people can resume," the official said.
And offering fully vaccinated people more freedoms, like going outdoors without masks, "would encourage more people to truly step up and roll up their sleeves," Besser added.
Among American religious groups, White evangelical Protestants are most likely to say they will not get the Covid-19 vaccine, with just over one in four -- 26% -- saying they won't get a shot, the survey found.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said administration of the vaccine could resume "immediately. "
While the risk is extremely low, people who suffer persistent, severe headaches or blurred vision, shortness of breath, chest pain, leg swelling, persistent abdominal pain or unusual bruising within three weeks of getting the J&J vaccine should get medical attention quickly, the CDC said in a new posting on its website.
In newly updated guidance for summer camps, the CDC said that people who can get vaccinated against Covid-19 should do so and everyone should wear masks, distance is still necessary and staying outdoors is best.
The agency said that as vaccines are not yet authorized for children of all ages, prevention measures like mask-wearing and physical distancing must continue even after camp employees are vaccinated.
