Moderna is developing a two-in-one vaccine booster shot that protects against both COVID-19 and flu, the pharmaceutical company announced Thursday.

The new vaccine, called mRNA-1073, combines Moderna’s current COVID-19 vaccine with a flu shot that’s also under development, according to a press release.

“Today we are announcing the first step in our novel respiratory vaccine program with the development of a single dose vaccine that combines a booster against COVID-19 and a booster against flu,” CEO Stephane Bancel said in a statement Thursday.

More than 147 million of the Moderna shots have been administered in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
