1/ Preliminary laboratory tests suggest that three doses of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine offer significant protection against the Omicron variant. The lab findings also indicate that two-dose regimen “may not be sufficient” to protect against infection with the Omicron, but may still protect against severe disease. The early data, which has not been peer reviewed or published, found that a third dose increased antibodies 25-fold compared with two doses against Omicron. Dr. Anthony Fauci, meanwhile, said the emerging evidence suggests Omicron may be more transmissible than previous variants but cause less severe illness.
