Answer: No.

Dr. Jeff Pothof says it’s unlikely you’ll have to stick with the same vaccine manufacturer for the booster because of the time frame for when booster shots could be given.

He anticipates it will be a year or more until booster shots are rolled out to the general public.

“At that point, it’s probably going to be fair game to get whatever booster is available to you,” said Pothof.
