CNN – If the FDA authorizes the updated vaccines, they could become available in September. The companies’ updated formulations are bivalent vaccines that combine the original vaccines with ones that target Omicron sublineages BA.4 and BA.5, which currently dominates in the United States. Moderna’s shot would be administered as a 50-microgram dose, and Pfizer’s as a 30-microgram dose. Moderna said Tuesday a Phase 2/3 clinical trial on these boosters is now underway. The data it submitted to the FDA comes from experiments in mice as well as data from humans using a different booster which was updated to protect against the BA.1 strain of Omicron.
