Research finds vaccines, previous infection might offer stronger than basic protection against Omicron
Dec 22, 2021
Washington [US], Dec 22 (ANI): The findings of a recent study suggest that people previously infected with COVID and those vaccinated will have some 'stronger than basic' defence against the Omicron strain of coronavirus. The research has been published in the 'Emerging Microbes and Infection Journal'. However, the test tube (or 'in-vitro', scientifically) samples of Omicron examined in this new research did not show that it "exceeds" all other variants in its potential capability to evade the protection gained from previous infection or vaccination. The findings also suggested that although a third-dose enhancement strategy can "significantly boost immunity," the protection from Omicron "may be compromised" -- but more research is needed to better understand this. Reporting on this very early study, lead author Youchun Wang, Senior Research Fellow from the National Institutes for Food and Drug Control in China, said that their results supported recent findings in South Africa which highlighted Omicron was "easy to evade immunity."
