Wednesday, 08. December 2021 13:07

Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE announced on Wednesday that their COVID-19 vaccine has shown a capacity to neutralize the virus' Omicron variant after the administration of the third dose.

The two companies issued a joint statement, explaining that, while two doses show significantly reduced neutralization titers, people who haven't yet received a booster shot are still "protected against severe forms of the disease."

"Ensuring as many people as possible are fully vaccinated with the first two dose series and a booster remains the best course of action to prevent the spread of COVID-19," Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said.
