Life After COVID Vaccines
Millions of Americans have been vaccinated and millions more are waiting for that shot in the arm to get back to some sort of normalcy.
The CDC says anyone who is fully vaccinated can gather indoors with other fully vaccinated people or in small groups without wearing a face mask or practicing social distancing - a sign things are slowly returning to normal.
