A 30-year-old female asked:

I originally got the johnson and johnson covid vaccine. but i keep hearing more of how its not on par with the others (moderna and pfizer). rather than a booster, could i get a full vaccination of either moderna or pfizer instead?

There is increasing evidence that mixing vaccines is not harmful, and might even confer greater immunity in some cases. Whether or not your state will allow you to mix and match depends on which state you live in, and how long it has been since you got the J&J shot. Call your state or local health department and ask.
