The poster presents the full run-2 results for the search for a heavy resonance decaying into a Z or W boson and a Standard Model Higgs boson (h), with the Z or W boson decaying into two leptons and the Higgs boson decaying into two b quarks. The search probed the reconstructed invariant or transverse mass distributions of the Zh and Wh candidates in the mass range from 220 GeV to 5 TeV. Upper limits at the 95% CL have been set on the gluon-gluon fusion production cross sections of a pseudoscalar Higgs boson (A) in the two-Higgs-doublet models and the Drell-Yan production cross sections of heavy vector bosons (Z' and W') in a heavy-vector-triplet model.
