The UK is considering boosters with different vaccines in the fall

‘The Guardian’ writes that British authorities are considering giving a different vaccine in the fall to those who have already been vaccinated with two doses of the same vaccine.

This strategy comes after some early results of scientific studies realized that there is an enhanced immune response with this strategy of mixing different vaccines.

Scientists continue to study this theory of a strong immune response by administering different vaccine doses, believing that giving a third booster, often in the fall, may lead to increased resistance to vaccines already given, and that this booster may be a different variant of the vaccines already administered before the summer.

The results of studies conducted in several countries show that individuals who have been vaccinated with a combination of different types of vaccines have reached four times higher levels of antibodies against the alpha variant of the virus.

Although large samples and additional studies with participants of different ages are needed, scientists promise to promote first results, however not surprisingly.

“The use of different vaccines to produce and enhance the immune response is often associated with a very strong immune response,” said Lawrence Young, a virologist at the University of Warwick.

Different technologies involved in the development of vaccines allow the immune system to fight the same goal, but in a slightly different way, triggering a diversified immune response. ”
