There's some broad agreement among Connecticut leaders and the Putnam County Health Department when it comes to what people should do if they get a COVID-19 vaccine sooner than a scheduled appointment. If someone made multiple appointments, the advice is to make sure to cancel the later appointment so that someone else can be vaccinated. New York State requires providers to schedule the second dose with the same provider where you receive your first dose. At most providers, the second dose will be scheduled at the time of the first. Anyone vaccinated at a Putnam County Department of Health clinic will be given a vaccination card with the date of the second does. An email reminder with a special link to complete mandatory registration for the second dose will be sent out.
