Video with Dr. Peter Marks, director of FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, discusses what the term "bivalent" means when describing the updated COVID-19 vaccines. Dr. Marks explains that the updated boosters target both the original strain of coronavirus and the Omicron variant. This is similar to other vaccines, such as influenza, that target multiple strains in a single shot. The video encourages getting an updated booster when eligible to reduce the risk of illness. This video is part of the "Just a Minute!" video series. The video is available at: What is a bivalent vaccine? – Just A Minute! with Dr. Peter Marks | FDA.
