CDC revises guidance to include mixing and matching of initial and booster doses.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued new guidance that eligible individuals may choose which of the three COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States that they receive as a booster dose.
Last week, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) met to discuss the recent booster dose recommendations for both the Moderna and Janssen/J&J COVID-19 vaccines. Some people may prefer the vaccine type they originally received, while others may prefer to get a different booster. As a result of last week’s meetings the CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.
