Science Dose: The Role of Bivalent Vaccines in Combating COVID-19 Variants

Prof. Gili Regev-Yochay discusses the importance of bivalent vaccines in combating ongoing COVID-19 variants and ensuring continued protection.

It was only four years ago that humanity collectively faced the COVID-19 global pandemic that turned our way of life upside down on a scale unlike anything we had experienced in the last century. There were a number of practices and precautions that allowed us to return to our natural order. Vaccines may have been the most prevalent of these practices. While no longer taking the world by storm, COVID-19 still exists in a number of forms. There is the Wuhan variant, Alpha variant, Delta variant, the Omicron BA1, Omicron BA2, Omicron BA4/BA5 and a new variant or group of variants can arise at any moment. 

The Director of Sheba’s Infection Prevention Control Unit and Director of the Sheba Pandemic Preparedness Research Institute, Prof. Gili Regev-Yochay, delves deep into bivalent vaccines, what they are, why they’re important and what role they play in the ongoing battle against a virus that impacted our planet at the start of the decade.
