FDA could soon approve Covid-19 vaccine booster “mixing and matching”

JOPLIN, Mo. — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration could allow people to mix and match Covid-19 shots for a booster.

The agency is preparing to approve getting a different brand of booster shot than the one a person initially received.

The FDA might note that getting the same vaccine as a booster is preferable, but it does not plan to recommend one shot over the other.

We spoke with a local pharmacist who says a mix and match booster might be beneficial.
