Coronavirus: BMJ urges NYT to correct vaccine ‘mixing’ article – BBC News

Dr Mary Ramsay, Public Health England’s head of immunisations, said: “We do not recommend mixing the Covid-19 vaccines – if your first dose is the Pfizer vaccine you should not be given the AstraZeneca vaccine for your second dose and vice versa.”

Dr Ramsay added that on the “extremely rare occasions” where the same vaccine is unavailable or it is unknown which jab the patient received, it is “better to give a second dose of another vaccine than not at all”.

Ms Godlee urged the New York Times to print a “highly visible correction” as soon as possible.
