UPDATE 1-U.S. says fully vaccinated people can gather with others

Mon 8th March, 2021 4:33pm
(Adds more details of guidance)
    NEW YORK, March 8 (Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Monday that individuals
inoculated against COVID-19 can meet in small groups with other
vaccinated people without masks, but that they should keep
wearing them outside the home. 
    CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said during a briefing that
fully vaccinated individuals can visit with unvaccinated,
low-risk people from one other household without masks.
    The public health guidelines are designed to help increasing
numbers of vaccinated people safely resume some more normal
activities and contacts with those outside their households
while the coronavirus is still widely circulating.
    The recommendations come as about 30 million people, or 9.2%
of the U.S. population, have been fully inoculated with COVID-19
vaccines made by Pfizer Inc  PFE.N / BioNTech  BNTX.O , Moderna
Inc  MRNA.O  and Johnson & Johnson  JNJ.N , according to CDC
data. 
    Nearly 18% of the U.S. population, or 58.9 million adults
had received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. 
    The Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines require two shots a
few weeks apart. The more recently authorized J&J option is a
one-shot vaccine.
