If you received the Moderna vaccine for your first dose:
Your second dose of the vaccine Modern should be administered 28 days after your first dose.
If you received the vaccine Pfizer for your first dose:
Your second dose of Pfizer vaccine should be given 21 days after your first dose.
You must get the second dose from the same provider who gave you the first dose. If this is not possible, please send an email to [email protected] and we will do our best to accommodate your circumstances. Please bring your “COVID-19 Immunization Record Card” to your appointment for the second dose.
Ideally, you should get the second dose within a few days of the specified date, but current CDC recommendations say that you can get the second dose up to 42 days after the first dose if vaccine supplies are limited. If you cannot be vaccinated during this period of time, get the second dose as soon as possible so that you are fully protected. You will not have to restart the vaccine series, no matter the time period between the first and second doses.
Scheduling your second dose:
Several days before the date indicated for your second dose, we will send you an email with information on how to schedule an appointment for your second dose. If you do not receive an email from us, please check your spam / junk folder or contact us at [email protected]. If you do not have internet access or need help scheduling your appointment, please call us at 913-715-2819, Monday-Friday from 8 am to 5 pm
Appointments available for the second dose will be titled “2ND DOSE.” And the brand name (Pfizer or Moderna) will be listed in the name of the quote. These appointments are reserved for people who received their first dose of the vaccine from the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment.
V-safe health checker for post-vaccination
V-safe (espanol.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/vsafe.html) a smartphone tool that uses text messages and web questionnaires to provide personalized health checks after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Through v-safe, you can tell the CDC right away if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from the CDC may call to see how you are doing and get more information. V-safe will also remind you to get your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine if you need it. V-safe cannot schedule appointments for vaccinations, including second doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
