Mix-and-match COVID-19 vaccine trial results to be available by summer


Results of a world-first study that will mix and match COVID-19 vaccines are expected by the summer, according to a senior member of the research team.

Volunteers are to be recruited from today for the study, with more than 800 people over the age of 50 being asked to help.

The trial will compare the effect of giving a dose of the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine followed a few weeks later by the Pfizer/BioNTech jab – or vice versa.
