General Vaccine and Appointment Questions
How long do I have to wait between COVID-19 doses?
The waiting period varies depending on which vaccine you receive.
The Pfizer-BioNTech and Pediatric Pfizer vaccines require 21 days between doses. The Moderna vaccine requires 28 days between doses. The J&J vaccine does not require a second dose.
A Booster dose is recommended for Pfizer and Moderna vaccine recipients 6 months after the second dose in the initial series. A Booster dose of vaccine is recommended for J&J recipients 2 months after the initial series is complete.
Get your second doses as close to the recommended interval as possible.
Do 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 your initial series.
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?
Yes. At this time, the CDC is encouraging everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop the spread of the virus, including covering your mouth and nose with a mask, washing your hands often, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and avoiding unnecessary gatherings when possible.
I need to talk to someone. Who can I call?
Severe post-injection reactions: Dial 911 IMMEDIATELY
Healthcare providers with general questions: 1-800-831-6293/option 1 for the IDPH
VaxiTaxi.com-specific questions: 1-855-VAX-IOWA [1-855-829-4692]

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.
