 As Maryland aims to boost immunity against the coronavirus, Gov. Larry Hogan announced those eligible for booster shots can "mix and match" their shots.

"Eligible Marylanders may now choose which vaccine they want for a booster, even if it is different from what they received initially," Hogan said in a statement Friday, Oct. 22.

This week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its recommendations around boosters.

Previously, only some Pfizer and Moderna vaccine recipients were eligible to get a third shot. Now those who have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine can also get a booster, as well.

The CDC also authorized on Thursday "mixing and matching" booster shots, whether people got doses of the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
