The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses. You should make sure you have a second appointment scheduled from the same site, or know how to schedule it, before leaving your first appointment.
The Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine is only one dose.
Scheduling a second dose appointment
- If you are receiving the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, you must receive both doses. You should schedule your second-dose appointment the same day you receive your first dose.
- Pfizer: Second shot recommended 21 days after first shot (can be up to 42 days)
- Moderna: second shot recommended 28 days after the first shot (can be up to 42 days)
- You must get the same type of vaccine both times
- The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is one dose only
If you cannot receive your second dose at the same place where you received your first dose, you can schedule your second dose at any vaccination site.
- Go to VaxFinder and start a new search.
- When you’ve chosen a location from your search results, call their displayed number or click their booking link to make an appointment.
IMPORTANT: You must make sure the location offers the same vaccine you received for your first dose. Otherwise, you won't be able to get the second dose.
- You can also call 2-1-1 for help scheduling a second dose if you're unable to do so on your own.
