The modified vaccine should arrive in Europe in the coming weeks.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended booster doses of modified vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna (Comirnaty Original/Omicron BA.1 and Spikevax Bivalent Original/Omicron BA.1) that target the omicron variant of the coronavirus. The EMA informs about it on its Twitter account and on its website website.

The modified vaccines target both the original virus variant and the BA.1 omicron variant. The European Commission has the final say in the authorization of the vaccine.

Her decision can be considered a formality and will follow in the coming days, Reuters writes. The modified vaccines are already manufactured and will be delivered to the European Union a few days after the vaccination is approved by the regulatory authorities.

Czech Health Minister Vlastimil Válek said last week that if the vaccines are approved at the beginning of September, there will be around three million doses in the Czech Republic by autumn.

The EU regulator has recommended the administration of booster doses to persons aged 12 and over who have had at least one vaccination against the covid-19 disease.

Vaccines specialized for the BA.4 and BA.5 submutations of the omicron coronavirus variant, which are now dominant and more contagious, are currently being reviewed by the EMA.
