What do you mean by "always has been"?

Do you mean that since they started giving moderna boosters to elderly it has always been 1/2 the dose of the original moderna vaccine they would have received 6 months prior?
Yes. Unless some doctor gave some boosters "off label" before the boosters were approved (somewhen around October I think).

The Pfizer booster is a full dose as it still has 1.7 less active component than half Moderna dose.

Pfizer for kids 5-11 (not approved in CH yet) is 1/3 of Pfizer (about 1/10 of normal Moderna).

Re: Mix and match booster jabs?

"The booster dose of Comirnaty (Pfizer) is administered at the same dose level as the first two vaccine injections (0.3 ml), whereas a half dose (0.25 ml) of the COVID-19 vaccine Spikevax (Moderna) is used for the booster injection."

Now that Switzerland is starter its booster jab program, is it possible to select a different vaccine for the booster than for the first two? Specifically, with two initial Pfizer jabs, is it possible to select Moderna as the booster?
It is possible. I have a neighbour, not yet 65, who is immune compromised and who was originally double vaccinated with Pfizer. His doctor arranged for him to receive a 3d full vaccination with Moderna (not the usual 1/2 dose that is normal for Moderna boosters).
