No, you are not required to get your second dose at the same location that you received your first dose. However, it’s encouraged that you receive both doses at the same location so your provider can ensure you’re getting the same vaccine type at the correct time. Additionally, second doses are automatically accounted for and sent to the location where your first shot occurred, so you are “guaranteed” your second shot at that location. Switching locations may delay the timing of your second shot appointment.
