I received my first vaccination at a different location. Can I receive my second dose from Allen Fire Department?

Texas allocates second doses based on where people received the first dose. Though you are permitted to get a second dose anywhere that offers it, the place you received your first dose should automatically reserve your second, or "booster" dose at the same location. Until the vaccine is more widely available, it is recommended that you make plans to receive the second shot at the same location as the first. Keep in mind that you must get two doses of the same vaccine to reach maximum immunity; if you received the Pfizer vaccine as your first shot, you must schedule an appointment to receive the same brand of vaccine for your second or "booster" shot.
