Both Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines are interchangeable, equally effective and safe for everyone over 18 years.Peel Region will also be reserving Pfizer doses for children, set to last until at least Thursday, June 24.No reason to think that Pfizer for dose 1 + Moderna for dose 2 would be any worse than 2 doses of Pfizer!
So if you got Pfizer for dose 1 and are being offered Moderna for dose 2, rest assured that you are doing the right thing by getting it (and not waiting for Pfizer).
Most ppl are ok with mixing Moderna and Pfizer.— Sabina Vohra-Miller (@SabiVM) June 21, 2021Moderna is an mRNA vaccine that ialmost identical to Pfizer
One option for a second dose includes mixing these two (eg Pfizer then Moderna)— Sumon Chakrabarti (@TorontoIDDoc) June 21, 2021A lot of concern about mixing the two mRNA vaccines
Due to the vagaries of global supply, most people who got Pfizer will be offered Moderna in the coming weeks
but cannot stress this enough — if you are offered Pfizer or Moderna, please take first available
