Persons with a Known SARS-CoV-2 Exposure
Community or outpatient setting:
- Defer vaccination until quarantine period has ended to avoid exposing healthcare personnel (HCP) or other persons during vaccination visit.
Residents of congregate healthcare settings (e.g., long-term care facilities):
- Offer vaccination, as vaccination likely would not result in additional exposures.
- Persons in these settings who have had an exposure and are awaiting results of SARS-CoV-2 testing may be vaccinated if they do not have symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
- Vaccinators should employ appropriate infection prevention and control procedures.
