If there is a delay in the distribution chain, how will it affect my vaccination efficacy if I have to wait longer between my first and second dose?

This is a really great question and one that many are discussing given vaccine shortages. Currently, it is recommended that you receive BOTH doses of the Pfizer (21 days apart) or Moderna (28 days apart) vaccines. If you miss the 21/28 day windows, you do NOT need to start all over again—just get the second dose as soon as you can. We do not know how this will affect the effectiveness of the vaccinations but will keep updating with recommendations from scientists and public health advocates!

Of course, if you receive the Janssen vaccine it is only one dose.
