Anyone get a mix-and-match booster yet? Side effects?

I get a Moderna booster to go with my Pfizer vaccines from earlier this year. I am sucking down gallons of water now, hoping that prevents the dreaded flu-like symptoms.

Why couldn’t you get another Pfizer?

I would never do that. All the testing is based on consistency with the shots. The side effects will likely be the same for you if you stick with the SAME brand. I think a different brand may bring different side effects. Good luck!

R1 - the science seems to be that mixing and matching is more effective. Also, Moderna was better more time out than Pfizer.

If I die, though, you can have my stuff. But you’ll have to fight my partner for it.

I had the Pfizer vaccine and had a 4 month cough and a still inflamed lung, so I want to get a different booster.

I was a mixed Astra Zenica/Moderna, OP. No side effects aside from a sore arm and mild chills, and some are saying that mixed doses provide more protection. Anyway, I recently got another shot of Moderna for travel if needed, now it seems that wasn't necessary since other countries are recognizing mixed doses.

What’s all this “some say” the mixed vaccines are better. Who says that? Where are the studies?

That's bullshit R2. All the data now suggests otherwise. Do some reading.

The science indicates that mixing AZ and an mRNA is more effective. There are no such studies on mixing the mRNA vaccines, as far as I know.

I’m not interested in may/maybe. I’ll take a third Pfizer.

That Nature article makes it sound like mixing an adenovirus vaxx like AZ with an mRNA vaxx like Moderna is more effective than two doses of AZ. But what about the opposite? If you had Moderna first, is it more beneficial to get an AZ or J&J booster? Or should you continue with an mRNA booster? And does it matter if you mix Moderna with Pfizer? Or should you stick with one or the other?

It doesn't really matter, OP. All the shots are lethal. You have ADE now! Enjoy winter!

My husband had the J&J vaccine in June and got a Pfizer booster in August, with no adverse reactions of any kind to either shot.
