Interval between 1st and 2nd doses

A second dose can be given even if the standard interval between doses is exceeded. There is no set maximum interval between vaccinations. Inoculation cannot be redone from the first time. We recommend that you receive the second vaccination as soon as possible.
In addition, although the effect of exceeding the standard vaccination interval has not been fully verified, WHO, the United States and some countries in the EU recommend 3 weeks (Pfizer vaccine) or 4 weeks (Moderna vaccine) Vaccine), the guideline is to inoculate the second dose within 6 weeks after the first dose.
