Sinovac vs. Omicron

An analysis developed by researchers from Yale University in the United States found that both people who were infected with other strains of SARS-CoV-2 or those who had never been infected and were vaccinated with the Chinese pharmaceutical preparation, presented low levels of antibodies against Omicron.

"Booster injections are clearly necessary in this population because we know that even two doses of mRNA vaccines do not offer sufficient protection against infection with Omicron," they detailed.

Fourth dose increases antibody production

The preliminary analysis presented by Israel details that Pfizer's fourth booster dose increases the production of antibodies, however, it does not sufficiently prevent infection by Omicron.
