FDA Warns Health Officials Not To Mess With COVID-19 Vaccine Doses Schedule

The FDA has learned of reports that some health care facilities are trying to stretch the number of limited doses by cutting them in half, extending the length of time between doses, or mixing and matching vaccines in order to immunize more people against COVID-19.

Agency officials said reducing the number of doses creates a potential for harm in patients because “they may assume that they are fully protected when they are not” and may “take unnecessary risks.”
