After Vaccination

You will receive a card reminding you when to return for your second dose. Both doses are necessary to be fully protected against COVID-19. You should also receive a text message reminder at the appropriate time.

If you receive the Pfizer vaccine, you should return in 21 days for your second dose.

If you receive the Moderna vaccine, you should return in 28 days for your second dose.

After you are vaccinated, the Mississippi State Department of Health asks that you continue to follow all safety measures such as social distancing and mask wearing.
