According to a NYSDOH spokesman, less than 5 percent of West New York residents who received their first dose passed the second test in more than three days.
Buffalo, New York – New York State Department of Health officials say some people in West New York are missing their appointments when they are shot a second time.
Both Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Moderna vaccines require two doses to be fully vaccinated, and it is recommended that they be given to each other within three or four weeks.
A spokesman for NYSDOH said less than 5 percent of West New York residents who received their first dose had passed their second test in more than three days.
Our goal is to keep the bullets in our hands as quickly and efficiently as possible, and less than 5% of West New York residents who received their first vaccine have had their second vaccination in more than three days – this is within the allotted time, said NYSDOH spokesman Jeffrey Hammond. All recipients of the first dose will receive a reminder email 24 hours before their second appointment, and providers must determine the second dose as directed in our guide. Drug Appointment ”
Hammond said second appointments will be made at the place where you will receive your first vaccine. If a person misses a second shot at a government-run station, he or she should contact the call center and reschedule the appointment.
An Erie County Health Department spokesman said he was noticing a lack of appointments for a second time and called on staff to relocate.
Some people told the ECDO that they missed their appointment because the day was not comfortable or because they simply forgot the appointment. They stressed the concern about some other side effects.
Public health experts say it is important to get both vaccines.
“The second vaccine will increase the effectiveness of the vaccine, which we call the long-term survival,” said Dr. Thomas Rousseau, a UBI infectious disease specialist. The second shot is a strong shot and the defense will no doubt last much longer.
During a press conference on February 9, Governor Andrew Kumo said that the second dose of the drug would not be used for a few days.
If a person does not return on the 21st or 28th day, you should get the vaccine for up to 42 days. You can use that amount for someone else after 42 days… But if that person returns a second time, every time you return, you should take a second dose for that person, even after 42 days.
Niagara County Health Commissioner Dan Stapleton said the Niagara County Health Department is not looking for a second time.
