I have a question that some of you may be able to help with.
My DS18 got his first dose of Pfizer on May 23. Currently, I was able to snag (yes, around here, you have to use all your FPP skills to get appointments) a second Pfizer dose appointment for July 18. Today, I found out that there’s another clinic that’s just opened up offering Moderna appointments as early as next week.
There’s been a shortfall of Pfizer delivered in Canada this week and may cause either cancellations or switching of vaccine brands anyway. Our doctors are saying the two are interchangeable, but I don’t know if that’s just a political line because they can’t get what we all got for our first doses or if it’s actually true. I don’t think the CDC approves of mixing and matching, so that makes me leary.
My question, should DS keep his July 18 appointment and hope Moderna isn’t substituted anyway (or appt is cancelled) or should I be proactive and book him for a Moderna next week.
What would you all do?
Thanks for your help.
