FDA Plans To Allow People To 'Mix-and-Match' Their COVID-19 Booster Shots


According to The New York Times, the FDA is planning to allow vaccinated individuals to receive a different COVID-19 vaccine booster dose from the original shot they received.

  • For example, if you got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, you would be able to get a booster dose of Moderna or Pfizer's vaccine.
  • Health experts will reportedly not recommend one shot over another.
  • A recent study found that those who received a Johnson & Johnson vaccine and then received a Moderna booster shot saw their antibody levels increase 76-fold in 15 days.
  • Pfizer's booster dose also raised antibody levels, but not as much as Moderna's, researchers found.
  • An official announcement from the FDA is expected before the end of the week.
