New Covid Study: 21% Omicron Cases Hit The Unvaccinated

According to the latest reports, it seems that about 8 out of 10 people who have caught the Omicron covid variant were people who got jabbed. This is what the CDC says.

As the Daily Wire online publication notes this is just 20% of covid 19 cases caused by the Omicron variant, based on an examination of diagnoses from December 1-8.

“There were 43 cases attributed to Omicron; 34 were among people who had been “fully vaccinated.” What’s more, one-third of the 34 had also received a third “booster” shot. Just one of those suffering from Omicron was briefly hospitalized.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci just said the following:

“the early data indicates that Omicron may not pose as great a risk of serious illness as the Delta variant, but stressed that further information is needed before he can definitively confirm that,” the Mail reported.

Should Americans get a booster to be considered fully jabbed? 

Fauci also continued and said federal officials are “continuing to evaluate” whether to urge Americans to get a booster shot in order to be considered fully vaccinated.

“For official requirements, it’s still two shots of the mRNA and one shot of the J&J for the official determination of what’s required or not,” Fauci told ABC News on Sunday.

He added this: 

“But I think if you look at the data, the more and more it becomes clear that if you want to be optimally protected you really should get a booster.”

The Omicron covid variant has been all over the news this year, and now, reports reveal that vaccines are inefficient without boosters.

Reuters.com notes the following:

“All three U.S.-authorized COVID-19 vaccines appear to be significantly less protective against the newly-detected Omicron variant of the coronavirus in laboratory testing, but a booster dose likely restores most of the protection, according to a study released on Tuesday.”

People are still vigilant regarding the novel variant of the virus.
