Note: This second dose information does NOT apply to those who received their first dose through child care or school clinics.
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. If you are not able to keep your automatically scheduled appointment, you can book an appointment for a later date using this link for a Pfizer vaccine: https://jocopfizer2nddose.setmore.com/ or for a Moderna vaccine: https://jocomoderna2nddose.setmore.com/. You will receive a reminder email a week prior to your appointment.
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.
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. They should have your second dose available when you are due. If this is not possible, please email [email protected], and we will do our best to accommodate your circumstances. 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.
