Riverside County to reach out to those who received first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at county clinics for second dose appointment

Local health officials plan to reach out to those who received a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination at county clinics for a second dose appointment.

Health officials will reach out through the contact method provided at the first appointment. At that time, the county will provide instructions for receiving the second dose conforming to the current CDC guideline on timeframes. Residents who received their first dose at a private provider should contact that same provider to schedule their second dose, said county health officials.

According to county health officials, current CDC guidelines allow up to 42 days for a second dose with either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, and due in part to limited vaccine supply from the state, it may not be possible to get a second dose at the 21 or 28-day mark originally recommended. The county is working on securing additional does from the state.

County health officials recommend residents get vaccinated with at least a first dose for those within the current phase and tier system.
