I think the obvious question is whether we should be taking a "hybrid" approach to vaccination. That is, a deactivated virus followed by an mRNA vaccine. I'm due for a 3rd Pfizer shot in less than 2 weeks, and I'm wondering if I can convince the CVS people to give me J&J. Probably isn't so easy, but I'm going to ask.

Wasn't there a study suggesting astra biontech to be superior to biontech biontech when it comes to the delta variant?

It's the reason why in Germany they started to give combined vaccinations.

I am also wondering whether I am more protected now that I got astra had covid (gamma/Brazilian variant) hopefully biontech (coming soon)

I've heard others talk about it, but I didn't see any data. I guess the other good question is whether it works in the other direction, too. Like if you had an mRNA vaccine then you get covid or a virus vaccine, do you get the same immunity? Really fascinating stuff.
