Mixing mRNA vaccines:

Mixing vaccines is safe, effective, and enables more Ontarians to receive their second and third doses sooner. Four doses of vaccination can protect you from severe illness against COVID-19 and its variants, including the Omicron variant.

If you had Moderna or Pfizer for your first dose you can safely take either Moderna or Pfizer for your second dose (or third dose if eligible) for strong protection. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are authorized for use in Canada and use a similar mRNA technology, so the vaccines are safe to mix. This is consistent with recommendations provided by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization and with practices within several provinces. Both provide protection against severe illness from COVID-19 and its variants. If your second or third COVID-19 vaccine is different than your first dose, you do not need to start your series over again. You will be considered fully immunized two weeks after receiving two doses of Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccines. Please see Toronto Public Health’s information page about COVID-19 vaccines for the latest.
