NACI to update guidelines on mixing and matching COVID-19 vaccines

KAYLA BUTLER | posted Tuesday, Jun 1st, 2021

OTTAWA – Canada’s vaccine panel is set to change its recommendation on mixing different kinds of COVID-19 vaccines.

It’s expected that the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) will give the go-ahead for people to take different vaccines for their first and second doses.

So far, data has been murky on whether it was okay to mix mRNA shots, like Pfizer and Moderna, with the viral vector vaccines, like AstraZeneca and Johnson and Johnson.

NACI will give its official recommendations in a press conference at 12 p.m. ET. We will have the update streamed live on this website and on our Facebook page.
