The FDA authorized two Omicron-specific Covid boosters on Wednesday.
One is by Moderna and the other is by Pfizer. Both contain a BA4/BA5 variant mix. Both have the mRNA technology. We run down the two vaccine options in this show as well as the trials the vaccine makers did and did not do as well as the emergency use authorization that they are still using, despite the unclear state of emergency.
Meanwhile, Moderna and Pfizer are not in it together. Moderna is suing Pfizer for infringement over the mRNA technology. Moderna does not want to stop Pfizer from using this though. They just want to be paid for all the times Pfizer shots are used.
