After the first shot of AstraZeneca, Merkel received the second shot of Modena vaccine
China News Service, June 23. According to a comprehensive report, on the 22nd, a German government spokesman stated that German Chancellor Merkel received the second dose of Modena vaccine after the first dose of AstraZeneca’s new crown vaccine.
p > In April this year, 66-year-old Merkel received the first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine. More than two weeks before that, the German authorities had recommended that the AstraZeneca vaccine should only be used for people over 60 years of age. On the 22nd, Merkel received the second dose of Modena vaccine.
Some experts believe that changing the second shot vaccine to products from different companies can enhance immunity. There are currently many related studies in progress. Canada, facing a shortage of supplies, has suggested that Modena and Pfizer vaccines can be administered interchangeably.
After a difficult start in Germany’s promotion of vaccination, the progress has accelerated significantly in recent weeks. As of the 22nd, about 1/2 or 51.2% of the population in Germany has received the first dose of vaccine.
