LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) - Appointments for the second dose of the Moderna vaccine are now available through the Public Health Department.
Individuals should receive their second dose 28 days after their first dose. For the vaccine to be effective, everyone who received the first dose needs to get a second dose.
Individuals arriving for their second dose are asked to bring their vaccine card with them to the clinic. Those who forget their cards will have to stand in an additional line for staff to look up their information in the computer system.
The second dose clinics will also be located at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center; however, there will be a separate check-in table with different paperwork to complete. Individuals will still be required to wait 15 minutes for observation following their second vaccination.
