People who receive the COVID-19 vaccine must quarantine for 2-14 days as they can transmit infection.

Quarantine is not advised for vaccinated individuals. There is no clinical evidence suggesting such people can transmit the virus unless infected.

Quarantine is not advised for vaccinated individuals. There is no clinical evidence suggesting such people can transmit the virus unless infected. COVID-19 vaccines worldwide have proved effective at protecting people from developing symptoms of COVID-19. However, a vaccinated individual needs to follow all the COVID-19 guidelines until they are considered fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated individuals are people who have received both doses of the vaccine and have spent at least two to four weeks strictly following the COVID-19 protocols. After receiving the second dose, the precautionary time depends on the vaccine manufacturer's guidelines defining a timeline for an individual to be fully immune.

After vaccination, if someone gets infected, symptoms will be milder and are called a breakthrough infection. Studies show that first-dose vaccinated people who test positive had lower virus levels in their bodies than unvaccinated positive people. Hence, researchers state this decreased viral load among vaccinated people might be less infectious as they have fewer viruses to spread to others.

However, there is no evidence to show that a vaccinated individual who is neither infected nor symptomatic would transmit the virus to others. Furthermore, such vaccinated individuals need not quarantine themselves as no medical bodies have advised doing so. But, vaccinated individuals must follow the same preventative measures as others until they are deemed "fully vaccinated." These precautionary measures are advised not because vaccinated people can transmit the virus but to ensure that they don't contract the viral infection from others.
