Can you get any booster shot?

If you’re in a rush to get a booster shot, you might feel inclined to get whichever is most readily available. Interestingly enough, research reported on showed that individuals who received a mixture of the Oxford–AstraZeneca jab and the Pfizer–BioNTech for their first two shots show a more robust immunity to the COVID-19 virus than individuals who got both doses of the same vaccine. However, that research is very infantile. The jury is still out on whether or not boosters can or should vary from the original shot. An interview with the Chair of The Medical Advisory Group of BU suggests some medical experts are leaning towards mixing one brand of vaccine with a different brand of booster for optimal protection.
