Hi Mustang Sally, thank you for sharing your experiences with us today. It is normal to feel a bit of frustration with these new protocols, all the changes, and with the ambiguity. It sounds like those who are working with vulnerable populations have to follow more strict protocols, which can be difficult.

I am happy to hear that you were one of the lucky staff members to receive your first dose of the vaccine! Many people who received their first dose of the vaccine have questions about their second dose. 

According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “The second dose should be administered as close to the recommended interval as possible. However, if it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval, the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines may be scheduled for administration up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose”. If you have any specific concerns or questions about your second dose, please feel free to ask CDC directly here

Thank you for being part of the frontline staff at the LTC; it clearly is not an easy task and there is a lot required from managers/staff in hopes to keep everyone safe.
