About Comirnaty Bivalent Vaccine

Comirnaty Original / Omicron BA.4-5 Vaccine (the “Comirnaty bivalent vaccine”) is a vaccine used for preventing COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2. It is given to adults and adolescents from 12 years of age and older. Based on the available clinical data, among subjects who received the Comirnaty bivalent vaccine or the ancestral strain vaccine as booster after completion of primary series, the antibody level against Omicron BA.4-5 and its increment were higher after receiving the Comirnaty bivalent vaccine compared to the ancestral strain vaccine. In terms of safety, clinical data and overseas vaccination data show that the safety profile of Comirnaty bivalent vaccine is similar to that of the ancestral strain vaccine.

Route of administration

In general, Comirnaty bivalent vaccine is given as an injection of 0.3mL into a muscle of your upper arm. Adolescents are recommended by local experts to receive BioNTech vaccine intramuscularly at anterolateral aspect of mid-thigh, although their preference for an injection at upper arm would be respected.


There is an increased risk of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the lining outside the heart) after vaccination with Comirnaty. These conditions can develop within just a few days after vaccination and have primarily occurred within 14 days. They have been observed more often after the second vaccination, and more often in younger males. Following vaccination, you should be alert to signs of myocarditis and pericarditis, such as breathlessness, palpitations and chest pain, and seek immediate medical attention should these occur. Adolescents and young adults should avoid strenuous exercise for one week after Comirnaty vaccination.

Possible side effects

Like all vaccines, Comirnaty bivalent vaccine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. The possible side effects caused by Comirnaty bivalent vaccine are similar to those caused by ancestral strain vaccine
