The CDC released the guidance on Friday, April 2.

The United States has administered more than 165 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the country as of Sunday morning and distributed almost 208 million, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Sunday.

The updated guidance also means travelers who are fully-vaccinated no longer need to get a COVID-19 test before and after travel, unless it is still required by the destination or airline.

"We state that fully vaccinated people can resume travel at low risk to themselves".

She also noted that there was no blood: "See, I've proven my point".

As for global travel, the CDC says fully vaccinated people don't need a COVID-19 test prior to travel unless it is required by the destination. The update also comes as the pace of vaccinations in the USA reaches close to 3 million people a day.

While Carey didn't say whether she was getting the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, she did say this shot was just part one, so stay tuned for the sequel in three or four weeks.
