Your second dose will be automatically booked for you after your first dose is administered. If you received your first dose elsewhere you can schedule a second dose. Most second dose appointments will be booked 28 days after a Moderna first dose or 21 days after a Pfizer first dose. Appointments may be scheduled further, but will still be within the CDC’s recommended window.

Frequently asked questions

How can we help you?

How were the vaccines developed so quickly?

Developing a drug is expensive and drug companies typically wait for phase 2 studies to be complete before investing in phase 3 trials. Because of the pandemic, the United States and other countries provided funding to vaccine developers to start planning and enrolling patients in phase 3 trials at the same time that phase 2 trials were being performed. This greatly accelerated the drug development timeline without compromising the typical trial standards.

Typically it takes a long time to enroll patients into a clinical study but during a pandemic enrollment was much easier. In order to prove efficacy you need enough positive results in the control group and since the prevalence of COVID-19 was so high they were able to achieve statistical significance early on.

How do I know the vaccine is safe? Can I trust the vaccine?

An FDA analysis of the Pfizer vaccine's safety and effectiveness on people aged 16 and older found "no specific safety concerns" that would preclude the vaccine's use. The same safety and effectiveness was found in people aged 18 and older for the Moderna vaccine. They made recommendations about vaccine safety to the larger FDA panel. Some mild to moderate side effects are common of all vaccines—mostly swelling, pain, redness at the injection site, fatigue, and sometimes a fever that resolves within about 24 hours. In rare cases, some patients have experienced symptoms of anaphylaxis. All vaccinated patients are monitored for signs of this and treated should it occur.

Clinical trials have data safety monitoring boards that are third party groups assigned to monitor safety and any adverse events in a trial. Analysis is performed by third party scientists with no financial or political motivations or biases.

Will I have immunity from COVID-19 after my first shot?

The first shot of the mRNA vaccine can help reduce the chance of getting symptomatic COVID-19 by 52%. It is 95% effective one week after receiving the second injection of the vaccine.

How long does the vaccine take to work?

The vaccine is most effective 1 week after your second dose. You still may get some protection 2-3 weeks after your first dose but you really need that second dose to get the most protection from COVID-19.

Will I feel fine the next day?

A common side effect of the first shot is local injection site soreness of the muscle. With the second dose, about 20% of patients may develop side effects like body aches, chills, and feverishness which typically last a day or less and are treated with acetaminophen or ibuprofen. This is a sign the immune system is revving up and doing what it is supposed to be doing.
