Does the Easter Vigil satisfy the precept to receive Communion on Easter?

Does receiving Eucharist on the Easter Vigil satisfy that precept of the Church which requires us to receive Communion on Easter?

Dear Just.

The Easter VIgil fulfills the obligation to attend Mass on Easter Sunday. Receiving Holy Communion at the Vigil fulfills what is known as the Easter duty. (All Catholics are required to receive Holy Communion at least once during the liturgical season of Easter.)
