AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT

 

AFTER YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS

You may have some side effects, which are normal signs that your body is building protection. These side effects may affect your ability to do daily activities, but they should go away in a few days. See common side effects and tips for managing them. 

  • If your side effects are significant or prolonged, please tell your health care provider and call the Clay County Public Health Center at 816-595-4200 to report your symptoms.

  • If you get a COVID-19 vaccine and think you might be having a severe allergic reaction after leaving the vaccination site, seek immediate medical care by calling 911. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and rare severe allergic reactions.

SCHEDULING YOUR SECOND APPOINTMENT

The vaccine that you received is part of a TWO DOSE series. Operation Safe will reach out to schedule your second appointment. You must schedule your appointment when invited and attend your appointment for maximum protection against COVID-19.

Timing for your second dose depends on which vaccine you received. If you initially received the Pfizer vaccine, Operation Safe can administer the second dose of Pfizer no earlier than 17 days after your first dose. If you initially received the Moderna vaccine, Operation Safe can administer the second dose of Moderna no earlier than 24 days after the first dose. You must receive both doses from the same manufacturer.

 

Both vaccines can be administered beyond the recommended timeframe; however, it is important that you stay as close to the recommended interval as possible. Operation Safe will contact you to schedule your appointment for a second-dose clinic in the recommended range.

 

While there is a window for when you can get your second dose, please make every effort to attend on the dates that Operation Safe recommends. First and second doses are ordered as a matched set. The supply you received your first dose from has a matched dose as part of the second-dose clinic we invite you to. If you deviate from this, you jeopardize other people’s opportunity to be vaccinated in a timely fashion. Additionally, Operation Safe cannot guarantee that we’ll have vaccine from the manufacturer you need if you miss your second dose clinic. You would then need to find another location for your second dose.

CONTINUE TAKING PRECAUTIONS

After your first dose, you will need to continue to follow all current guidance to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. This includes:

  • wearing a mask,

  • staying at least 6 feet away from others,

  • avoiding crowds,

  • washing hands often,

  • following CDC travel guidance,

  • following quarantine guidance after an exposure to someone with COVID-19,

  • following any applicable workplace or school guidance.

TRACK YOUR HEALTH

If you have not already, register for V-Safe to track your health after getting vaccinated.

CONTINUE TAKING PRECAUTIONS

You are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after your second dose.

 

If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated.

If it has been two weeks since your second dose, click here to read CDC's guidance for When You’ve Been Fully Vaccinated.

Quarantine Guidance: People who have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19 are not required to quarantine if they have been fully vaccinated (two weeks since second dose) against the disease within the last three months and show no symptoms.
