FDA advisors will vote 28 June on whether an Omicron component should be included in new COVID-19 booster vaccines. Following WHO recommendations, the FDA may no longer also be looking to update the primary vaccine series at this time.
The bivalent vaccine is likely to get regulatory support, along with government contracts, but competitors, notably Moderna, will also step into the ring.
Discrete packaging for authorized dose in 6-11 year-olds is not yet available, so vaccination providers have to use product from a vial labeled for ‘booster doses only’ in adults. ACIP members unanimously endorse use of the mRNA vaccine in individuals ages 6-17 years but urge manufacturers to move away from relying on color to differentiate formulations.
Companies such as Novartis, Roche or Takeda are heavily invested in the advanced therapeutics field, usually spreading their bets across multiple modalities. The remaining challenges offer opportunities for the next wave of innovation to transform the field once again and make a dent in the larger market of common diseases and solid tumors.
