“I’m in touch, can I still have my second scheduled dose this week?”
Unfortunately there is no other injection yet. If you have been in contact, you should first make sure you haven’t been infected by doing a test 7 days after your last exposure to an at-risk person. If this test is negative, you can be vaccinated if you manage to find an appointment.

If you have had covid before an injection, a single dose at least two months after infection and after six months for maximum effectiveness will suffice. Remember that vaccination does not prevent contamination. It reduces infectiousness and protects against severe forms of covid, but you can still pass the disease on to your loved ones. So continue to wear the mask and respect the barrier gestures.
And if you have symptoms or have been in contact, get yourself tested and isolate yourself with both doses for more than 15 days.
