moderna vaccine 2nd dose

    hey ho

    so i got the biontech one, first dose on the 30th june, and just today got the sms for the second dose this sunday. so far so good.

    my wife got the moderna one on 12. july. not the issue is that we want to travel (within EU) on the 11th august. from the taxi driver who drove her to the vaccination center, she heard that many people are experiencing delays. our concern is that we dont want to book flights, and then her appointment doesnt come and we have to travel without her getting the second shot. if we understand it correctly, we can still travel is we get a pcr or antigen test shortly before the flight, but since we are flying for around 3 weeks, that would push the second dose out too far, no? we wont be able to get the shot in the country we're travelling to since you can only get vaccinated with a registered address there.

    did anyone of you get the 2nd moderna vaccine, and after how many days exactly did you get the second shot?

    Exactly 28 days from first to second moderna for me. My wife was 26 days, but had to rearrange due to illness and was reset for 7 days later, which will be tomorrow

    Seems to be running like clockwork at the moment.

    Bear in mind that your destination may not consider you vaccinated until 14 days after your second dose though.

    The vaccine cert just says when you were vaccinated etc, it's not passport and it's up to the country to which you are traveling to interpret it.

    we're travelling from a non-risk area of ireland to germany and, if i understood it correctly, we only really need a negative pcr or antigen test to travel for my wife and daughter, i will be travelling 14+ days after my 2nd shot... hopefully. its weirdly difficult to get a precise answer.

    You'd need to check advice on the German side closer to travel date. High and low risk areas change day by day.

    I got my second moderna dose last week.

    It was 35 days after dose 1.

    Four weeks for me, well actually 27 days. One mate got theirs 26 days later, everyone else around the same

    Taking a chance booking flights when things can change so much for people not fully vaccinated

    The second dose doesn't have to be 4 weeks later so it wont matter on that point when she gets it
