'Mixing and matching' COVID vaccines effective - study

Wednesday, 13. October 2021 21:22

"Mixing and matching" coronavirus vaccines is a safe and effective immunization approach, according to the results of a study published on Wednesday by the United States National Institutes of Health.

The approach consists of administering different booster vaccines from those used for the initial two shots. The study has found that combining Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine boosters produces a more robust immune response, than when either of the jabs is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson.

The study is yet to be peer-reviewed and will be presented to the Food and Drug Administration's advisory committee on Friday.
