From what I heard recently (Radio 4, but I can't remember which programme) the vaccine doesn't necessarily stop people catching the virus - it just stops them becoming very ill or dying if they do catch it.
The scientists don't yet know whether people who catch the disease after being vaccinated can or cannot pass the virus to others.
So you will still need the masks and social distancing, just in case.
