General Vaccine and Appointment Questions
How long do I have to wait between COVID-19 doses?
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine requires 21 days between doses. The Moderna vaccine requires 28 days between doses. The J&J vaccine does not require a second dose.
You should get your second doses as close to the recommended interval as possible.
You should NOT get the second dose EARLIER than the recommended interval.
There is no maximum interval between the first and second doses.
Can I switch to a different COVID-19 vaccine for their second dose?
Do I have to get my second dose from the same pharmacy or clinic that I got my first?
No; however, for the sake of efficient scheduling we encourage you to schedule with the same location, if possible. The most important considerations for your second dose are that you wait the minimum number of days between injections and that the brand you receive is consistent for both appointments.
What happens if I just get one dose of the vaccine?
How will I feel after my COVID-19 vaccine?
Do I still have to wear a mask if I had two doses of vaccine?
I need to talk to someone. Who can I call?

How do I report a reaction after my vaccination?
Call your VaxiTaxi.com pharmacist. A provider is available 8am to 6pm [CST].
Use V-safe , a new smartphone-based, after-vaccination health checker for people who receive COVID-19 vaccines. It uses text messaging and web surveys from the CDC to check in with vaccine recipients following COVID-19 vaccination and also provides second vaccine dose reminders.
Visit Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the national system that collects reports from healthcare professionals, vaccine manufacturers, and the public of adverse events that happen after vaccination. Reports of adverse events that are unexpected, appear to happen more often than expected, or have unusual patterns are followed up with specific studies. Reports to VAERS help CDC monitor the safety of vaccines. If experts detect an unexpected adverse event, they quickly study it further to assess whether it is a true safety concern.
Vaxi Taxi pharmacists are available to deliver immunizations to your home or office.
