The approval is based on the clinical data for the bivalent vaccine that has been presented and is also following the guidelines approved from the drug control authorities from countries such as United Kingdom, Australia, European Union, Canada and Singapore. Moderna Spikevax Bivalent Original/Omicron is a bivalent next generation vaccine that also contains elements that target the Omicron variant, other than the original variant.


The vaccine is expected to arrive in the country by the end of the year.

The control measures for this respiratory infection are similar as the control measures for the COVID-19. The public are hoped to cooperate and continue to upload their respective ART results, whether positive or negative to the BruHealth app.
