The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses for effectiveness. For these vaccines, second-dose appointments will be scheduled after you receive your first vaccine dose. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one dose. 

My priority is ensuring that anyone who wants a vaccine gets a vaccine, as quickly as possible.
