If you got the Moderna vaccine, can you get a Pfizer booster?

I haven't heard anything being said about this.

1. I don't think they have the science to know if it will be beneficial to do so. nt

2. No. Unless you lie. They don't want mix

and .match, at least not yet.

3. Not sure...

I heard a conversation, well sort of heard, about that and now I can't recall what they said.

I had the Moderna shot and plan to wait for info on whether a booster is needed or not. I don't think there's much info about that yet.

5. Canada mixed them...

Problems surfaced with the term, fully vaccinated when travelling outside Canada.

Mixing coronavirus vaccine brands is OK, Canada says

The Public Health Agency of Canada said people who received an AstraZeneca vaccine for the first dose may get either a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine for the second dose. People who received one of the two mRNA vaccines -- Pfizer's or Moderna's -- may get either of the two brands for the second dose.
It is still optimal, however, to use the same brand of vaccine for both doses, the country's top doctor said.

7. At this point its unclear Moderna recipients need a booster

So far, Moderna’s effectiveness lasts longer than Pfizer. Will be interesting to eatch the data over time.

8. They won't do it here.

I got my Moderna booster already, which is nothing more than an extra shot of the same stuff you get with the first Moderna shot. It was approved for people who are immune compromised, so that's how I got it. They insisted on seeing my vaccine card before they would give it to me, though. I had to go back home and bring it back to the pharmacy before she would give me the shot. She said that it was so she could see that I was getting a booster that matched my previous shots.

9. Oddly, if you are immuno compromised the CDC says it's ok to switch

But if you aren't they didn't approve switching.

10. I have a good friend who got both the Pfzier and Moderna vaccines by mistake

He is in amazing shape but got vaccinate early on because his wife is an ER doc. By mistake he got one shot of each vaccine. My friend was sick for a day but was lifting weights two days later. The doctor at the clinic realized the mistake and did an antibody test. My friend had a very high level of antibodies.

There has been some investigation about mixing vaccines but they have not got enough data

12. Everything I've heard or read seems to indicate that

the vaccines should not be mixed. With it being offered in so many places now, I'd think it shouldn't be too difficult to find the same vaccine for the booster.

I've had three Modernas, and just got my flu shot this week. Bugs Beware!

13. Only if you lie. The current authorizations do not allow mixing as there is insufficient data to

recommend it. Sometime in the future, that may be shown to be fine to do--perhaps even providing a better immune response, but we don't know that for sure so providers should not be doing it (and my guess is that 99% plus will not).

14. They are combustible when mixed.

The 5G technologies are incompatible, and the results are potentially fatal.

NEVER MIX VAX.
