Poughkeepsie Journal: What happens if you miss a second vaccine dose?

With the rising number of people registering for the vaccine, stocks eventually run low and many people are unable to get their second dose of the Pfizer or the Modern vaccine “in time”. Many appointments have been cancelled due to lack of supplies, spiking a fear in those due for a 2nd dose.

Even then, by your 2nd dose, you should be still fully vaccinated.
