The CDC previously said the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines should not be used together as a first and second dose, but as mass vaccination efforts continue across the country, and the supply of the vaccines was stretched thin, mixing the vaccines may be necessary.
Health leaders with the University of California and Brown University theorized only administering a single dose of COVID-19 vaccines, instead of giving second doses, to allow more people to be vaccinated.
Although the Alabama Department of Public Health released information about the vaccine arriving in the state, specific details about times and locations for the vaccines arriving at their destinations were being kept secret.
