In the text you receive, it will give you a date and time frame you should arrive at the site. Please arrive anytime during the time frame and join the 2nd dose line located at the front of Building C.
If you received a text but someone you know did not, that means it is not time for them to schedule their second dose.

If you did not receive your first dose at the Gloucester County Mega Vaccination Site, you can not get your second dose at the site.
Both vaccines require two doses to reach an approximate efficacy rate of around 95% each.
We do know that according to information provided to the Food and Drug Administration by Pfizer, their vaccine is 52.4% effective after the first dose. The second dose boosts that effectiveness to 94.8%.
The Moderna vaccine has even higher numbers. It has been shown to be 80.2% effective a little more than a week after one dose, according to information provided to the FDA. After two doses, it is 94.6% effective.
The Pfizer product is a two-dose vaccination series given 21 days apart. If more than 21 days have passed since the first dose, the second dose should be given at the earliest opportunity. You do not have to repeat any doses.
The Moderna product is a two-dose vaccination series given 28 days apart. If more than 28 days have passed since the first dose, the second dose should be given at the earliest opportunity.
The CDC states: 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.
To receive your first dose, please register on the New Jersey Vaccine Scheduling System (NJVSS).
Once you are eligible, you will be able to schedule an appointment. Appointments are released as vaccines become available. Vaccines are distributed by the State of New Jersey.

About The NJ Vaccine Call Center
The State’s toll-free vaccination hotline (1-855-568-0545) is available to assist callers with identifying if they are currently eligible for a vaccination, pre-register for the vaccine, and to help them identify locations nearest to them where they can get vaccinated.
The hotline is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day and can help callers in more than 240 different languages.

In the near future, call center agents will also be able to assist callers in looking up registrations, scheduling appointments, and editing appointments in NJVSS.
No one will have to pay for the vaccine itself.
The COVID-19 vaccine will be available without cost sharing barriers. Based on the CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Program Provider Agreement, all providers must vaccinate individuals regardless of whether they have health insurance coverage or what type of coverage they have, and are prohibited from balance billing or otherwise charging vaccine recipients.
The Pfizer product is a two-dose vaccination series given 21 days apart. The second dose is allowed within a four-day grace period (days 17-21). If more than 21 days have passed since the first dose, the second dose should be given at the earliest opportunity. You do not have to repeat any doses.
The Moderna product is a two-dose vaccination series given 28 days apart. The second dose is allowed within a four-day grace period (days 24-28). If more than 28 days have passed since the first dose, the second dose should be given at the earliest opportunity. You do not have to repeat any doses.
That happens “about a week after the second dose," says Naor Bar-Zeev, PhD, an associate professor of international health and vaccinology and deputy director of the International Vaccine Access Center at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Once the second dose kicks in, both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have shown in studies to be about 95% effective.
