(March 10, 2021) - Restrictions Eased for Fully Vaccinated People, More Groups Now Eligible for Vaccines in Los Angeles County

 The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LADPH) announced that, as of March 10, 2021, it has updated its  Health Officer Order, modified to reflect changes with respect to small gatherings for fully vaccinated people per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Interim Guidance for fully vaccinated people and visits or small private gatherings. See the updated County Health Officer Order: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/docs/HOO/HOO_SaferatHomeCommunity.pdf. See the CDC Interim Guidance: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html

 LADPH considers you to be “fully vaccinated” when:

• Two weeks or more have passed since you received your second dose in a 2-dose vaccine series (PfizerBioNTech or Moderna); or

• Two weeks or more have passed since you received your dose of a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen)
