UK prepares for ‘mix and match’ Covid vaccine booster programme

FT News says the UK is preparing to become the first big country to administer “mix and match” coronavirus vaccines for its booster programme, according to senior government figures.

Many Britons are expected to have a different vaccine to their first two jabs for the third, booster dose, on the basis that it would provide better protection against Covid-19, said the government insiders.

Ministers want to press ahead with an autumn booster campaign after separate studies from Oxford university and the team behind the Zoe Covid app found that the protection against symptomatic infection provided by the BioNTech/Pfizer and the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccines waned four to six months after second doses.
