WHO Does Not Recommend Mixing Vaccines

PAHO’s Dr. Ropero explained that the third dose for the elderly and severely ill people is not to be confused with the booster shot, which is recommended for healthy people after their vaccines have become inactive over time. WHO also does not recommend mixing and matching different brands of vaccines because there are still studies being conducted on whether mixing different brands are safe. And while there have been over six billion people who have been vaccinated worldwide, Dr. Margherita Ghiselli explained that there have been no long-term effects reported with any of the vaccines that have been approved.

“No long-term effects have been identified and remember that to date the world has received six point five billion doses of vaccine across the globe, in almost all countries of the world. So if there were any effects from the vaccine, we would probably have heard it by now since we have been vaccinated since December of last year. So we have been going for eleven months and nothing has been identified although all these scientists in all these countries keep looking very carefully. So, no. No real long-term consequences form the vaccine, itself. From the disease, certainly that is where we talk about long COVID. And that is one of the advantages of receiving the vaccine. You are much less likely to first get infected with COVID and then to suffer from the long-term consequences.”


Short term effects last only a couple days and include body ache, fever, and headaches. The records show that the most deaths are among the unvaccinated. They stand eleven times more at risk of hospitalization and death. At present, there are studies being conducted to determine if children under the age of twelve can be vaccinated for COVID and if so, which vaccine would be most appropriate.
