Will the existing vaccines work against Omicron?
Will the existing vaccines work against Omicron? Or there is any other boosters for omicron? I have taken 2 doses of covid vaccine..Do i need to take booster vaccine also?

@abhisai While, there is no evidence to suggest that existing vaccines do not work on Omicron, some of the mutations reported on Spike gene may decrease the efficacy of existing vaccines. However, vaccine protection is also by antibodies as well as by cellular immunity, which is expected to be relatively better preserved. Hence vaccines are expected to still offer protection against severe disease and, vaccination with the available vaccines is crucial. If eligible, but not vaccinated, one should get vaccinated.
