Second Doses

Appointments must be made for first, second, additional or booster COVID-19 vaccines. JCDHE is not able to accommodate walk-ins for COVID-19 vaccinations.

Your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is due ON or AFTER the due date on the back of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card. You should receive all recommended doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the most protection.

An appointment is required to get your second dose at a JCDHE clinic. Bring your vaccination record card and a new printed and signed COVID-19 vaccine consent form to your second dose appointment: www.dispenseassist.net/Covid.html.

COVID-19 vaccines are widely available in Johnson County, Kansas at health systems and pharmacies. Visit vaccine.gov to find a vaccination provider near you. 

Ideally, you want to get the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna 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 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 After Vaccination Health Checker

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.
