Info About Second Doses

A Message from Dr. Jain

“Many of you have received the first dose of vaccine and are waiting for your second dose. The usual recommended interval between the two vaccines is 3 weeks for the Pfizer vaccine and 4 weeks for the Moderna vaccine. However, at times it may not be possible to maintain the interval, so the CDC recommends that the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines can be administered up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. Also, if the second dose is administered beyond the 6 weeks interval, there is no need to restart the series.”
