COVID-19 Vaccine: What Lansing Needs To Know On 2nd Dose
I got the first of the two COVID19 vaccines on Monday, and I feel pretty darn good about it. It was so easy. I registered with the Ingham County Health Department and a few days later I had an appointment. I drove through the MSU Pavilion at the time they gave me and it was a breeze. The folks there were so informative, and were so very nice. I go back in about 3 weeks, and I will be done.
Here is something you need to know, and pass along. If you received the first dose of a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, and you can't make your second appointment, here is what you do says fox47news.com.
According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, despite the limited supply, a second dose is set aside to ensure you can receive it within the recommended timeframe. The MDHHS said should you not be able to make your second-dose appointment, you can still receive it up to six weeks (42 days) after the first dose.
Now if you wait more then 6 weeks, and you should NOT, there would be limited info and data about how effective the vaccine will be. So it is important to get the second dose for the best protection against COVID19. Make sure you get that second dose.
If you have an appointment for the 2nd dose and can't make it, all you have to do is reschedule your second dose immediately. Looks like we are all gonna have the opportunity by the end of May to be vaccinated.
