Researchers think that combining two vaccines could strengthen immune responses by harnessing the best features of each. Dan Barouch, MD, PhD (Center for Virology and Vaccine Research, BIDMC) noted it’s possible that responses might be better than what either vaccine can achieve on its own but that remains to be proven experimentally for COVID-19.

Combining different coronavirus shots could speed immunization campaigns — and even boost immune response.

This op-ed by Westyn Branch-Elliman, MD (Infectious Disease, BIDMC) and Kathryn Stephenson, MD, MPH (Center for Virology and Vaccine Research, BIDMC) for US News & World Report, presented the debate about reopening K-12 schools for full in-person learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, and argued how waiting until it’s “safe enough” is clearly defined, the benchmark may be elusive – and remain just around the corner for the foreseeable future.

Opening schools with zero risk may not be possible for a long while. So how long will we let our kids suffer and fall behind?
