 Pfizer and Moderna boosters are effective against Omicron

Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna boosters have been shown to be highly effective in preventing Omicron-related hospitalizations, according to three new studies by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Al-Jazeera reports.

Studies have found that boosters are 90% effective in preventing hospitalizations. In addition, boosters prevent Omicron-related emergency room visits.

One study showed that citizens who received a booster had the highest protection against coronavirus infection, both during the Delta-dominated period and and during the period when the Omicron strain came to the fore.

“This really shows the importance of getting a booster dose,” said Emma Accorsi, one of the study's authors.

” “If you are eligible for a booster but didn't get one, then you're out of the loop and you need to get a booster,” said Rochelle Walensky, head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
