You should administer the second dose as close as possible to the recommended interval of 28 days after dose 1. However, if it is not possible to follow the recommended interval, you may schedule the second dose of Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine for administration up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose. There is currently limited data on the efficacy of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines administered beyond this window. If the second dose is administered after these intervals, there is no need to restart the series.

COVID Vaccination Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- Am I immune to COVID-19 after getting the vaccination?
- It typically takes a few weeks for the body to build immunity (protection against the virus that causes COVID-19) after vaccination. That means it's possible a person could be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 just before or just after vaccination and still get sick.
- Are Vaccine Side Effects a good sign?
- The vaccines can cause side effects, like tiredness, achiness, and fever, but the vast majority last only a day or two and aren't serious or dangerous. Side effects are actually normal signs that the vaccine is working and your body is building protection.
- When do side effects of covid-19 vaccine start?
- When exactly symptoms set in following your dose will vary from person to person, but generally you can expect your side effects to hit within 24 hours of your dose, and not to stretch 7 days post your vaccination.
- Do I still have to wear a face mask after getting the vaccination?
- Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others. The CDC recommends people wear face masks in public settings, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. Wearing a face mask may limit exposure to respiratory droplets and large particles and may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus.
- Should I avoid gatherings after getting the vaccinations?
- In general, interacting with more people, especially closely and for longer times, increases risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. Avoid gatherings of 10 or more people.
- Is the COVID-19 vaccine effective?
- COVID-19 vaccines are effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. After you are fully vaccinated, you may be able to start doing some things you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
