Many pharmacies in Lane County are receiving vaccine supply directly from the federal government in addition to state and local distribution. Check with your local pharmacy to see if they have appointments available. Their supply continues to be limited, so we suggest that if you don't find an appointment right away to keep checking and take the first appointment available to you whether from Lane County, your primary care provider, or your pharmacy.

Where do I receive my second vaccine dose?
- You should plan to receive your second dose from the same place you received your first dose.
- If you attended a Lane County Public Health event, check their online scheduling system the week that you are due for your second dose to find an available appointment. Lane County suggests looking on Tuesday or Wednesday before your 21- (Pfizer) or 28-day (Moderna) mark. That is when the site repopulates with the upcoming weekend’s clinics.
- The second dose should not be administered earlier than recommended.
- CDC guidance allows for second doses to be administered in the following date windows:
- Pfizer-BioNTech: 3-6 weeks after the first dose
- Moderna: 4-6 weeks after the first dose
Stay Safe Until You’re Vaccinated
Until we vaccinate enough Oregonians to stop the spread of COVID-19, we are going to have to continue to wear face coverings, keep our gatherings small, stay home when we’re sick, wash our hands often and physically distance from people we don’t live with.
COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting you from getting sick. Based on what we know about COVID-19 vaccines, people who have been fully vaccinated can start to do some things that they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
We’re still learning how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19. After you’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions in public places like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces until we know more.
Have You Been Fully Vaccinated?
People are Considered Fully Vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines,
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
If it has been less than 2 weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second dose, you are NOT yet receiving all the protective benefits of the vaccine. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated.
Guidance for Fully Vaccinated People:
The Food & Drug Administration requires rigorous safety testing before it will approve any vaccine. Tens of thousands of people from many diverse backgrounds, age groups and geographic locations participated in COVID-19 vaccine testing.
Based on the data collected, the federal Food and Drug Administration authorized the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines for emergency use in the United States The Western States Scientific Safety Review Workgroup, comprised of nationally acclaimed scientists with expertise in immunizations and public health, also independently reviewed the vaccine data collected and determined these vaccines were safe and effective.
Millions of Americans have now been vaccinated, and strict ongoing checks show no safety concern.
