Scheduled for COVID-19 Vaccine? Here’s What To Do Before Your Appointment
Schedule your second appointment
The vaccines currently used in the largest vaccination program in US history are the ones developed by Pfizer and Moderna. You can find out more details about them here: First Coronavirus Vaccines: How Effective Are They and What Does It Mean for You?
Both vaccines have to be given in two doses, spaced 21 days apart for Pfizer and 28 days apart in the case of Moderna, in order to efficiently protect you against COVID-19. Therefore, it is crucial for your immunization to receive both doses at the time interval that was decided after the clinical trials. When you will be required to schedule your next appointment for the second dose, make sure it is at a time and day that’s convenient for you. You don’t want to miss getting the second dose because your boss does not approve of you missing work.
