What You Need to Know

  • People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can resume activities they did prior to the pandemic. Take your best shot at returning to normal by getting vaccinated as soon as possible.
  • Vaccines from PfizerModerna, and Johnson & Johnson are currently approved by FDA for Emergency Use Authorization. 
  • The vaccine is key to helping our lives get back to normal. It protects you and those around you. 
  • People from diverse races and ethnicities tested the vaccines in large clinics trails to prove they are safe and highly effective.
  • The vaccines do not contain the COVID-19 virus. You can’t get COVID-19 from the vaccine. 
  • The vaccine is working and helping to keep people out of the hospital (or getting seriously Ill.) 
  • The Pfizer vaccine showed 95% effectiveness in clinical studies, the Moderna vaccine showed 94% effectiveness, and the Johnson &Johnson vaccine showed 66.3% effectiveness.  
  • The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses for maximum protection, so people will need to get a second dose of the same vaccine three to six (Pfizer) or four to six (Moderna) weeks later. 
  • You should be vaccinated regardless of whether you already had COVID-19. That’s because experts do not yet know how long you are protected from getting sick again after recovering from COVID-19.

Vaccine Conversations

Communities of color across Houston have been hit disproportionately hard by COVID-19, particularly the African American and Hispanic communities. It is essential to address the concerns many people of color have about vaccines due to historic and cultural factors.  Learn more at houstontx.gov/getthefacts.

Second Doses - HHD Sites

The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses for maximum protection, so people will need to get a second dose of the same vaccine three to six (Pfizer) or four to six (Moderna) weeks later. CDC guidance says the second dose can be administered up to 42 days later and there is no need to restart the series outside that timeframe.

The Houston Health Department reaches out by text message and email 24-48 hours before the recommended second dose due date with a link to self-register for an appointment.

People who are overdue for their second dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine from the Houston Health Department can email HHDCOVID19.CRT@houstontx.gov or call 832-393-5190 Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to schedule their second dose appointment.
