Beginning Feb. 25, the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment is automatically scheduling second dose appointments exactly three weeks after the first vaccine at the same time and location. You will no longer need to go online and make a second dose appointment.
If you need assistance rescheduling your second dose, please call 913-715-2819. Please bring your “COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card” with you to your second dose appointment.
If you received your first dose before Feb. 25, a few days before your second dose due date, we will send you an email with information about how to schedule your second dose appointment. If you do not receive an email from us, check your spam/junk folder or contact us at [email protected]. If you do not have internet access or need assistance scheduling your appointment, call 913-715-2819, Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Available second dose appointments will be titled with “2ND DOSE.” And the name of the brand (Pfizer or Moderna) will be listed in the appointment name. These appointments are reserved for those who received their first dose of vaccine from the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment.
Your second dose of vaccine is due on or after the due date on the back of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.
You should get the second dose from the same provider who gave you the first dose. If this is not possible, please email [email protected] and we will do our best to accommodate your circumstances. Please bring your “COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card” with you to your second dose appointment.
Ideally, you want to get the second dose within a few days of the due date, but current CDC recommendations say you can get the second dose up to 42 days after your first dose if vaccine supplies are limited. If you cannot get vaccinated during that time frame, get the second dose at your earliest convenience so you are fully protected. You will not be required to restart the vaccine series no matter the length of time between the first and second dose.
V-safe (vsafe.cdc.gov) is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers, someone from CDC may call to check on you and get more information. V-safe will also remind you to get your second COVID-19 vaccine dose if you need one. V-safe cannot schedule vaccine appointments, including second doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
