GENEVA, July 12 (Reuters) – The World Health Organization’s chief scientist on Monday advised against people mixing and matching COVID-19 vaccines from different manufacturers, calling it a “dangerous trend” since there was little data available about the health impact.

“It will be a chaotic situation in countries if citizens start deciding when and who will be taking a second, a third and a fourth dose.
