A 42-year-old member asked:
do you know when you get a booster; does it need to be the same brand vaccine as the ones you had previously?

Yes: While the manufacturers state it is preferable to keep the same brand going during the series, it is certainly not essential and there is no good science behind that statement except for the companies wanting to sell you their brand of vaccine. They are interchangeable.
