We haven't researched this idea fully yet, but if the data shows that a booster vaccination helps we might be tempted to get a "first" shot all over again. There are plenty of vaccinations available and not nearly enough people taking advantage of them so our action wouldn't deprive anyone. As for safety, there is a documented case of someone getting multiple shots at once by accident. But, like we mentioned, we need to do a bit more research.

I've been wondering the same thing. I got my 2 doses of Moderna back in March+April. Could I get dose #3 of Pfizer now, or another Moderna? What would be the health risks or benefits, if any? (huge vaccine surplus leads me to think that's the only relevant question)

Russian entry (and no, this is not the dreaded Sputnik-V; this is CoviVac... or maybe "KoviVak" since this is Russian )
My sister got two of these.

Hopefully people will take this as a sign to get the shot.

Because of the countries that are not recognizing AstraZenaca or mixed doses my wife and I were both able to get a 3rd dose; the last 2 being Pfizer.

The FDA changed course to some degree and now the official recommendation is a booster for folks in immunocompromised cohort after 8 months, and a few days later - the same for long-term care facilities and personnel.
And I will be getting my 3rd shot after Sep.20, per district plan. (as I work at a hospital)
