If my first shot is Pfizer, can my second shot be Moderna?

If you experienced an adverse effect following your first dose, please speak with your primary care provider for guidance for your second dose. Boosters can be the vaccine of your choosing.
Can I skip my second shot?
No, unless you had a severe allergic reaction to your first dose, the second dose is required to reach its full effectiveness.
Once I receive my second shot, am I immediately protected?

Why will I need to be monitored After the injection?
You will be monitored to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients.
Should I continue to wear my mask and social distance after I am vaccinated?
