Don't Forget Your Second Dose!

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are given in two doses, given a couple of weeks to a month apart. Your provider will give you a card to keep track of both of your vaccine doses. If you get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you will be protected with just one dose.

Additional Dose of Pfizer, Moderna Vaccine for Immunocompromised People

The CDC is recommending that moderately to severely immunocompromised people who are fully vaccinated with Pfizer and Moderna receive an additional dose of vaccine. Individuals should consult their health care provider if they are unsure as to whether they are moderately or severely immunocompromised based on their health condition, history, or status. Immunocompromised individuals who are fully vaccinated with Pfizer and Moderna and are looking to receive this additional dose of the respective vaccine, should consult their health care provider before scheduling a vaccine appointment. Additionally, health care providers are encouraged to communicate with their patients who would benefit from an additional dose. The FDA has not recommended an additional dose for other individuals at this time.

Practice Healthy Habits

Wash Your Hands

Washing your hands is one of the most important steps you can take in staying healthy. When you wash, make sure you: 

    1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap. 
    2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails. 
    3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the "Happy Birthday" song from beginning to end twice. 
    4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water. 
    5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them. Washing hands with soap and water is the best way to get rid of germs in most situations. 

If soap and water are not readily available, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. 


The department continues to urge Pennsylvanians to follow CDC guidance for wearing a mask where required by law, rule, and regulations, including healthcare, local business and workplace guidance.  

Don't Touch Your Face

Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

Clean Surfaces

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces  — especially when someone is ill.
