As of right now, a majority of Americans have received both of their vaccine shots. Of they opted for the Johnson and Johnson inoculation, only one shot was need. Moderna and Pfizer were both offered under a two shot process.
A small number of people have only gotten one of the two shots. During a Sunday interview, Dr. Anthony Fauci recommended that those people don’t mix and match their shots.
Host Jim Acosta asked, “Can you mix and match or is it better to wait?” The renowned immunologist responded, “It’s better to wait. We are looking at mix and match studies now. [We expect] all the necessary information in a few weeks so it might not be ready exactly on the week of September 20th, but it would be very soon thereafter.”
When asked about booster shots, Fauci told the host, “[The expected roll out date, September 20th] would actually be about eight months from the time the very first people in this country got their vaccinations in January.”
