Can you spread Covid-19 if you are vaccinated?

When did my isolation period for Covid-19 start?
How soon before symptoms start can someone infected with Covid-19 be contagious?
People who have Covid-19 can infect others from around 2 days before symptoms start, and for up to 10 days after. They can pass the infection to others, even if they have mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, which is why they must stay at home and follow NHS and government guidlines.
what do I do if I have Covid-19 symptoms or positive test results?
Anyone with Covid-19 symptoms or a positive test result should stay at home and self-isolate immediately. If you have symptoms of Covid-19, you should arrange to take a PCR test as soon as possible. This still applies even if you have received one or more doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.
How do I know if I need to self-isolate for being in contact with someone with Covid-19?
Contacts who need to self-isolate will usually be notified and advised to do so by NHS Test And Trace, including by the NHS Covid-19 app.
