FULLY VACCINATED BUT GOING NOWHERE

It  been over two months since I had the second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

So I am presumably as protected as possible at the present time from getting infected, seriously ill, hospitalized or dying due to the novel coronavirus.

On Friday, April 2, 2021, the Washington Post reported that Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (better known as the CDC) announced that fully vaccinated persons could resume travel within the U.S.
