(WSYR-TV) — With millions of children getting their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, we have a question about the timing of the second dose, especially with the holidays approaching.
Three weeks is the recommended interval between the children’s shots. 21 days has been determined to the the fastest way to achieve full protection, but you have some wiggle room. Health officials and experts say it’s okay to get the doses four, five or even six weeks apart. Kids can also get their second shots up to four days early.
