The World Health Organization (WHO) issued a warning against mixing coronavirus vaccines as Delta variant cases surge.
“It’s a little bit of a dangerous trend here,” said chief scientist for the World Health Organization Soumya Swaminathan.
“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.”
The WHO’s warning came too late for actor and former Mr. Universe “Iron” Mike Mitchell.
The 65-year-old “Braveheart” and “Gladiator” actor received two “inactivated virus” Sinovac injections followed by a Pfizer BioNTech mRNA “booster” shot days before he died from an apparent cardiac arrest.
He was found dead in a marina cabin near his house boat in Turkey on July 22.
Mitchell received his first experimental Sinovac Coronavac injection on February 22, according to screenshots of his Facebook page.
Mitchell’s Facebook page was scrubbed clean after his death.
Mitchell received the second Sinovac injection on March 20. He reported no apparent adverse effects, according to Facebook posts in which he urged his followers to get the shots.
Sinovac is approved by WHO and administered everywhere except the United States, Russia and Western Europe, according to Deadline.com.
