Second Dose Vaccination

VIDEO (click to view): How to Book a Second Dose COVID Vaccine on MyTurn

Everyone who received their first dose is guaranteed a second dose. If you book your vaccine through MyTurn, you will be prompted to book your first and second dose at time of booking. If you book your first dose through a clinic that does not utilize MyTurn, your second dose vaccination will be scheduling during your first dose appointment before you leave.

When should you get your second dose of the COVID vaccination? The CDC's updated guidance was revised to allow for second dose administration up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first if it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval. This applies to both Moderna and Pfizer. CDC states the first dose does not “expire.” Even if a person gets the second dose later than the recommended timeframe, they should not repeat the whole course - just get the second when they can.

FDA Approves Emergency Use of Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen Vaccine

Having a safe and effective vaccine is the top priority. Approving vaccines as safe, and making sure they work, is up to several scientific groups at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and other groups look at available information about a vaccine and make informed decisions about the risks and benefits of using it. Before vaccines are authorized in California, both the CDC and the Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup (WSSSR) must review and approve these recommendations. The WSSSR provides an additional layer of vaccine safety review for California and other western states. If authorized by the CDC and WSSSR, Butte County will follow these recommendations.
