Second doses of COVID-19 vaccine should be given close to the recommended dates. However, due to federal vaccine shortages, if your second dose is not available on that date, it is recommended to receive the dose as soon as possible afterward, which may require a week or even two week delay.

The second dose will boost immunity even if delayed, and the series is not currently recommended to be restarted if there is a delay of second dose. The Cabell-Huntington Health Department regrets delays caused by the vaccine shortage and hopes these will be temporary and resolved by increased federal supply to the State of West Virginia.

Vaccine services may have to be postponed in the event of inclement weather.
