For the two vaccines currently available in Southern California, one dose is not enough.

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require a second shot three to four weeks later (depending on which one you got) to provide high levels of protection against coronavirus.

Making sure you get that second dose can be very confusing. You've told us that you can’t find appointments online, that the search is making you anxious, and that you’re getting conflicting information from different sources.

We hear you and we're here to help.
