The New Normal: Mix-and-match COVID-19 booster shots may be on the way
Federal regulators are looking to make it more convenient to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot.
The plan would be to let Americans mix and match which vaccine they receive. If a patient got a Johnson & Johnson shot, they would then be able to get a Pfizer or Moderna booster shot.
It could be beneficial for anyone who had an adverse reaction to a vaccine dose.
A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention panel is also meeting this week to consider Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster shots for anyone over the age of 18.
News on that is expected in the coming days.
