The UK became the first country to approve Moderna’s bivalent vaccine developed to attack the original virus of COVID-19 and the new variant omicron, reported the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA, for its acronym in English).

With this decision, the vaccine is expected to be used as a booster for adults next fall, although the number of doses that are available is unknown at this time.

The health authorities had already indicated that, starting next September, a booster vaccine will be offered to those over 50 years of age and to people who are in the highest risk groups.
