WHO Supports the Mixing of COVID-19 Vaccines with EUL Approval

On Thursday the World Health Organization (WHO) released updated guidelines on COVID-19 vaccination, which indicate that any of the COVID-19 vaccines which have received a WHO Emergency Use Listing (EUL) may be used interchangeably.
This is based on recommendations from the WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization.
The current vaccine protocols for Trinidad and Tobago will be revised immediately in accordance with these updated WHO guidelines.
These changes will therefore be reflected in the COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine combinations which are accepted for both the TT Safe Zone initiative and for entry into Trinidad and Tobago.
This means that persons who received 2 doses of any combination of WHO approved COVID-19 vaccines with a 2-dose regimen will now be considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receipt of the final dose.
