As the vac­cine con­tin­ues to roll out, an increas­ing num­ber of islanders are receiv­ing their sec­ond doses.

Below is some key infor­ma­tion to keep in mind. 

1. When it is time to sched­ule your sec­ond dose, you’ll get an email from a sanjuanco.com email address with the link to register.

2. You may not receive your sec­ond dose in a dif­fer­ent loca­tion from your first.

3. Side effects from your sec­ond dose may be worse than your first.

4. You must main­tain all of your COVID pre­cau­tions, even if you’re vaccinated.

Q: When should I receive my second dose of vaccine?

The Mod­er­na vac­cine is the only type of vac­cine dis­trib­uted at the San Juan Coun­ty-run vac­cine clin­ics. Oth­er vac­cines will have dif­fer­ent guide­lines, but this arti­cle will focus on the Mod­er­na vac­cine as that is the dose giv­en near­ly uni­ver­sal­ly in the islands.

For the Mod­er­na vac­cine, to ensure max­i­mum effec­tive­ness the sec­ond dose may be admin­is­tered no less than 25 days after the first dose, and no more than 45 days after it. That said, every effort is being made to deliv­er sec­ond dos­es 28 days later.
