WHO warns individuals against mixing and matching COVID vaccines

The World Health Organization’s chief scientist has advised individualsagainst mixing and matching COVID-19 vaccines from different manufacturers, saying such decisions should be left to public health authorities, Trend reports citing Reuters.

“It’s a little bit of a dangerous trend here,” Soumya Swaminathan told an online briefing on Monday after a question about booster shots. “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.”

Swaminathan had called mixing a “data-free zone” but later clarified her remarks in an overnight tweet.

“Individuals should not decide for themselves, public health agencies can, based on available data,” she said in the tweet. “Data from mix and match studies of different vaccines are awaited – immunogenicity and safety both need to be evaluated.”

The WHO’s Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on vaccines said in June the Pfizer Inc vaccine could be used as a second dose after an initial dose of AstraZeneca, if the latter is not available.

A clinical trial led by the University of Oxford in the UK is ongoing to investigate mixing the regimen of AstraZeneca and Pfizer vaccines. The trial was recently expanded to include the Moderna Inc and Novovax Inc vaccines.

Camilla makes faux pas with matching mask as she steps out in new blue coat at Royal Ascot

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall was seen at the racecourse with her husband Prince Charles. The royals arrived by car rather than carriage as Queen Elizabeth II was not present. Camilla wore a stylish coat and appeared to hold her face mask instead of putting it on.

Camilla has often worn blue ensembles for royal engagements but it seems to be the first time she has stepped out in that particular number.

The coat had long sleeves and hidden latches which held it closed.

Camilla’s garment cut off at the knee and she appeared to be wearing a light blue skirt underneath.

She matched the coat to a blue striped face mask which she held in front of her face.


The royal opted to keep her legs bare and wore a pair of cream pumps with a notable black toe cap.

Camilla has worn the heels on many occasions and they are thought to be by designer Chanel.

She held a light grey leather clutch bag in her left hand.

In line with the Royal Ascot dress code, Camilla styled her look with a hat.

Camilla also wore a three string pearl necklace which is a piece of jewellery she is rarely seen without.

She sported the Four Strand Pearl Chokers with Diamond Clasps.

The chain is held up with four rows of pearls and has a central diamond clasp which is surrounded by three rows of diamonds.

The Duchess of Cornwall also had on her £100,000 diamond engagement ring.

Novak Djokovic aims Rafael Nadal warning as sights set on matching Roger Federer this year

“I don’t pay attention to the ranking after breaking the record for weeks as number one. I reached that goal, now my priority is to win the Grand Slams, I’m focused on it.”

Djokovic fumed at the umpire during his Italian Open second-round win over American Fritz as rain eventually delayed his match.

As conditions got worse and play continued, he said: “How much more do you want to play? I asked you three times and you are not checking anything.”

After action eventually restarted, Djokovic won 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) and afterwards said: “It was a really strange match, to play in the rain, it was difficult.

“I was stressed out in the end obviously, but I think it was the right call to stop the match.

“When I came back, I thought we were quite even actually till the last point. I’m glad that I managed to finish off this match in straight sets. I know I can play better.

“It was a very strange match with strange conditions. Obviously it is challenging for both me and him.”

Kate and William cosy up in matching blue outfits to mark 10th wedding anniversary

This post originally appeared on Daily Express :: Life and Style Feed

Kate Middleton joined the Royal Family in 2011 when she and William married in Westminster Abbey. The couple had previously met while studying at university and now have three children together. To celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, the couple have released new portraits. 

Kate first wore the dress to a reception back in 2019 when the couple were on a royal tour of Pakistan.

The royal added minimal jewellery to the look, opting for just a dainty silver necklace and her engagement ring on show.

She also styled her brown locks in her signature wavy hairstyle which fell over her shoulders as she snuggled up to William.

For makeup, Kate went for a natural look with a small amount of peach blush, natural eye makeup and a nude lip to complete the look. 

William got down on one knee while the couple were on holiday in Kenya.

According to experts at EST1897, the ring could be worth a fortune.

Ben Jarret from EST1897 said: “The English Royal family are known for their crown jewels and luxurious taste. 

“Their engagement rings often contain family heirlooms, with diamonds being passed down and often re-set into new bands. 

“Kate’s engagement ring is no different, with Princess Diana’s being passed onto her from William. 

“The ring features a 12-carat oval blue sapphire, cut into facets, and surrounded by fourteen solitaire diamonds. The setting is made from 18K white gold.

“On their tenth anniversary, we estimate that the ring is now worth £390,000 based on the value of the stone and band, although with the ring being an iconic cultural piece it could fetch hundreds of thousands more if it ever reached auction.”

Dream Kardashian and True Thompson are truly Khloe Kardashian‘s “angels”. The Good American mogul, whose daughter True recently turned three, took to Instagram to share some sweet snaps of the cousins cuddling up to each other. “My heart is melting with these two angels!” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star captioned the April 23 post, which showed the two tots in matching outfits. The pair were seen hugging and giving the camera big smiles, as they rocked matching, bright pink bejeweled leotards. True also wore a silver necklace with a heart shaped pendant, while both girls accessorized with pink clips in their hair.

The adorable post comes less than two week after Khloe paid tribute to her mini-me on her third birthday. “Seeing life through your eyes is something so special. It’s something magical. I will cherish every moment I have with you forever,” Khloe wrote on Instagram. “You are every dream I’ve ever had of becoming a mommy come True. Thank you for choosing me! God, thank you for blessing me with my angel.”

True and her cousins couldn’t be closer, so of course, she celebrated the milestone with the likes of Stormi Webster, and her mom, Kylie Jenner, 23. This year, her party was full of Disney Princess memorabilia, colorful balloons and even actors dressed as some of True’s favorite Disney characters. The whole house looked like palace of pastels! “Of course, the princesses,” Khloe said in her IG video, introducing Princess Anna and Elsa from Frozen and Princess Tiana from The Princess & The Frog. “Happy birthday, True,” one of the princesses said to the camera as Khloe gave fans a tour of the house.

Her dad Tristan Thompson also paid tribute to his mini me on social media. He took to his Instagram Story on April 12 to share some adorable pics of True when she was just a bub! One photo showed the Boston Celtics basketball star holding his baby girl in the pool. “My Princess,” Tristan wrote, adding a crown emoji. “Happy 3rd bday!!”
