Missed Your Second Shot? If over three to four weeks have passed since individuals have gotten their first COVID-19 vaccination shots, they should still go get their second shots. The boost effects of the second shot still will be beneficial at preventing COVID-19 hospitalization even if administered after twelve weeks.
