Municipal health service GGD Amsterdam accidentally vaccinated a healthcare worker with two different coronavirus vaccines, instead of two doses of the same vaccine as is protocol. The 60-year-old woman first received a Pfizer vaccine in early February, and then an AstraZeneca vaccine on March 1, Hart van Nederland reports based on a letter the GGD sent the woman, which is in its possession.

In the letter sent to the affected healthcare worker, a doctor of the GGD’s infectious disease department wrote that there is no data available on “the effectiveness of a series consisting of two vaccines from different manufacturers”
