Get Up to Date With Your COVID-19 Vaccines

You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines when you have received all doses in the primary series and all boosters recommended for you, when eligible. Vaccine recommendations are different depending on your age, the vaccine you first received, and time since last dose, as shown below.

APH has created a calculator for COVID-19 vaccination guidance. It will help you determine if you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations based on current recommendations from the CDC.

Adults ages 18 or older

Pfizer-BioNTech

Primary Series: 2 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech given 3–8 weeks apart. [1]

Fully Vaccinated: 2 weeks after final dose in primary series.  

Boosters: 

  • 1 booster, preferably of either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, recommended for most people at least 5 months after the final dose in the primary series.
  • 2nd booster of either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine recommended for adults ages 50 years and older at least 4 months after the 1st booster.

Up to Date: Immediately after getting all boosters recommended for you. [2]

 

 1 1 Talk to your healthcare or vaccine provider about the timing for the 2nd dose in your primary series.

  • People ages 6 months through 64 years, and especially males ages 12 through 39 years, may consider getting the 2nd primary dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) 8 weeks after the 1st dose. A longer time between the 1st and 2nd primary doses may increase how much protection the vaccines offer, and further minimize the rare risk of heart problems, including myocarditis and pericarditis.
  • People ages 65 years and older, people more likely to get very sick from COVID-19, or anyone wanting protection due to high levels of community transmission should get:
    • the second dose of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine 3 weeks (or 21 days) after the first dose, or
    • the second dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine 4 weeks (or 28 days) after the first dose. 
    • People ages 18 years and older should get their second dose of Novavax 3-8 weeks after the first dose.

Register and get started with V-SAFE, a new smartphone-based, after-vaccination health checker for people who receive COVID-19 vaccines. V-SAFE will use text messaging and web surveys from CDC to check in with vaccine recipients for health problems following COVID-19 vaccination. The system also will provide telephone follow-up to anyone who reports medically significant side effects. 

Vaccination Record / Vaccine Card

If you have been vaccinated through APH, you can log into your account and print off a record there. If you did not get your vaccines through APH, you will need to contact DSHS for your immunization record. 

Anyone, especially international travelers, can request an official copy of their vaccination record by visiting an APH Shots for Tots clinic location. The preferred method of requests is to complete a request form that can be found in the dropbox located in front of each clinic. Completed forms should be placed in the dropbox. APH will make contact with interested individuals within 24 hours to schedule a time to pick up the record.
