German Chancellor receives mixing vaccine doses

German Chancellor Angela Merkel received a Moderna coronavirus vaccine as her second jab, after getting the first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine, a government spokesman said yesterday.

In April, German government recommended that people who AstraZeneca vaccine as first dose should receive a different shot for their second dose. Several other European countries made similar decisions.

After a stuttering start, Germany’s vaccination rollout has sharply accelerated in recent weeks. As of Tuesday, one in two, or 51.2 percent of the population have received their first dose, Aljazeera reported.
