AZ-Pfizer vaccine combo increases antibody level - study

The COVID-19 vaccination using AstraZeneca's jab as a first dose and Pfizer's as the second can increase antibody levels up to six times compared to the two-shot AstraZeneca dose, according to a South Korean study published on Monday.

The study, involving 499 medical workers who received the vaccines, concluded that all combinations provided them with neutralizing antibodies. However, the protection was higher after a mixed AstraZeneca/Pfizer vaccination or following the two-shot dose from Pfizer.

Multiple countries worldwide are offering citizens to receive a vaccine other than AstraZeneca after reports of rare blood clots.
