NOTE: What kind of additional liability protection is this edict setting up? Who defines an "exceptional situation?" We have no idea what mixing these two brand new vaccines could do. This seems like reckless and blatant human experimentation. Remember the old drinking adages: Liquor then beer, never fear. Beer then liquor, never sicker. Here's a C19 take: Moderna then Pfizer you must believe the lies-a. Pfizer then Moderna you may never return-a.
From CNBC: CDC quietly changes Covid vaccine guidance to OK mixing Pfizer and Moderna shots in ‘exceptional situations’
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quietly changed its guidance on Covid-19 vaccine shots, saying it’s now OK to mix Pfizer’s and Moderna’s shots in “exceptional situations” and that it’s also fine to wait up to six weeks to get the second shot of either company’s two-dose immunization.
While Pfizer’s and Moderna’s vaccines, which both use messenger RNA technology, were authorized to be given 21 and 28 days apart, respectively, the agency now says you can receive either shot so long as they are given at least 28 days apart, according to new guidance posted Thursday on its website.
Although “every effort” should be made to ensure a patient receives the same vaccine, in rare situations “any available mRNA COVID-19 vaccine may be administered at a minimum interval of 28 days between doses” — if supplies are limited or the patient doesn’t know which vaccine they originally received, the CDC’s new guidance says.
