Getting the second dose

As explained by the CDC, “persons should not be scheduled to receive the second dose earlier than recommended (i.e., 3 weeks [Pfizer-BioNTech] or 1 month [Moderna]).” If there’s no other way, the agency says that a grace period of several days is necessary. “Second doses administered within a grace period of 4 days earlier than the recommended date for the second dose are still considered valid,” the CDC says.
As for doses administered earlier even than the grace period, the agency says they should not be repeated. Also, if a delay in administering the doses cannot be avoided, the CDC informs that the 2nd dose of both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines can be given up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first shot.

    MY WIFE AND I ARE OVER 70 AND NEITHER OF US HAVE BE CONTACTED. THE HOSPITAL SAID THAT WE SHOULD CONTACT OUR PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR AND THAT PERSON SHOULD TELL US WHEN WE WOULD GET OUR SHOT.
    WE BOTH HAVE DIFFERENT PRIMARY CARE DOCT0RS. I JUST DON’T WANT EITHER OF US GETTING THE VIRUS AND PASSING AWAY. WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR OVER 33 YEARS AND WE ARE VERY CLOSE. WE BOTH HAVE THINGS WRONG WITH US. SHE IS A DIABETIC AND HIGH BLOOD PRESURE. I HAVE PTSD AND HEAD TRAUMA AND ARTHRITIS PRETTY BAD, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, AND WE BOTH SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION. DO YOU RECOMMEND ANYTHING WE SHOULD DO OR NOT DO.

    1. You didn’t mention which state you live in, but my mother lives in Florida and she contacted her county health department and has already received her vaccine. We live in Virginia and our county’s health department is pre-registering people under 65 for appointments when the vaccine is available for them. People with underlying conditions do not have to wait and, in our state, don’t need to provide medical proof of that condition. Hope this helps. Goood luck!

    2. CALL YOUR HEALTH DEPARTMENT WHERE YOU LIVE. I DID AND I’VE RECEIVED MY FIRST SHOT. THEY WILL ASKED YOU SOME QUESTIONS AND THEN TELL YOU WHEN YOU CAN GET YOUR FIRST SHOT.
