Second Dose Clinic Rescheduled for Jan. 27 Vaccine Recipients

The Adair County Health Department’s administration of the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID vaccine has been rescheduled for Feb. 24, at The Crossing, 810 East Shepherd Ave., in Kirksville. The second dose is only for those who received their first dose Jan. 27, not for the general public.

The clinic is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Vaccine recipients should arrive at The Crossing at the same time as their first dose was scheduled Jan. 27. There is no charge for the vaccine; however, Medicare beneficiaries are asked to bring their Medicare card with them to the clinic.

Frigid winter weather forced the postponement of the second dose administration originally scheduled for Feb. 17.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine should be administered at least 21 days after the first dose. The CDC recommendations also state there is no maximum interval between the first and second dose.
