AstraZeneca vaccine booster shot effective against Omicron

A three-dose course of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine is effective against the omicron coronavirus variant, the pharmaceutical company said on Thursday.

Antibody levels against Omicron after the booster shot were higher than antibodies in people who had been infected with and recovered naturally from COVID-19, an Oxford study showed. After a three-dose course of the vaccine, neutralizing levels against omicron were similar to those against the virus’s delta variant after two doses.
