Schedule your vaccine appointment

How do I get my second dose?

En Español

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 receive all recommended doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the most protection.

If you received your first vaccine from the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE), then your second dose is automatically scheduled for the same time at our vaccination site in Lenexa either three weeks after the first vaccine if you received a Pfizer vaccine or four weeks after the first dose if you received a Moderna vaccine. You will receive a reminder email a week prior to your appointment. You can also receive your second dose on a walk-in basis. Second doses of the Pfizer vaccine are offered Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and on Thursdays from 3 to 6:30 p.m. Second doses of the Moderna vaccine are available on Thursdays from 3 to 6:30 p.m. at the JCDHE Vaccination site located at 15500 W. 108th Street, Lenexa, KS 66219.

If you need assistance rescheduling your second dose, please call 913-715-2819. Please bring your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, your photo ID, and a printed and signed COVID-19 vaccine consent form with you to your second dose appointment.

In May, walk-in hours are available for first doses and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine from:

  • 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays
  • 3 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays
  • 9 a.m. to 11:30 on the following Saturdays: May 1, May 15 and May 22

Second doses of the Moderna vaccine are available on a walk-in basis from 3 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays.

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 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.
