Tue, 18th May 2021 21:46

(Updates with reported approval)

MADRID, May 18 (Reuters) - Spain's public health commission
has approved a proposal by the health ministry that Spaniards
under 60 who have received a first dose of AstraZeneca's
vaccine get a second shot of the coronavirus vaccine produced by
Pfizer Inc, El Pais newspaper reported on Tuesday,
citing unnamed sources.

The proposal will affect about 1.5 million Spaniards who
received the AstraZeneca shot before the government banned it
for those aged under 60 due to blood clot concerns.

A study by the government's Carlos III Health Institute
found that mixing and matching the two drugs was both safe and
effective.
