As the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ramps up its push for all COVID-vaccinated Americans to get another booster shot against COVID-19, they’re now saying it’s OK to take any of the available shots for a booster, as opposed to waiting on the same ones you received before.
In fact, according to The New York Times, a study released October 15, 2021, hinted that mixing an mRNA shot with the Johnson & Johnson jab could give higher protection if they were mixed, finding that “recipients of Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose shot who received a Moderna booster saw their antibody levels rise 76-fold in 15 days, compared with only a fourfold increase after an extra dose of Johnson & Johnson.”
State health officials had been pushing for permission to mix and match the COVID shots for quite some time, the Times said. Study authors warned that it was a small study based only on antibody counts, not immune cell levels, with only short-term findings.
