Question: 

I received AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD for my first dose. How do I decide which vaccine I should get for my second dose?

Answer: 
If you received AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD for your first dose, you have the option to choose either an AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD or an mRNA vaccine for your second dose. Both options are safe and effective, and both have been studied by experts around the world. Whichever option you choose, you are making the right choice.
