“Fourth Jab is NOT Enough To Prevent Omicron Infection”

Even fourth Covid jab is NOT enough to prevent Omicron infection: Israeli study finds people given four doses only ‘a bit less’ likely to test positive than triple-vaccinated – as No10 scientists says only vulnerable may need future boosters

  • Fourth dose of the Covid vaccine provides only limited defence against Omicron
  • Sheba Hospital, Tel Aviv, began administering fourth jab to 270 medical workers
  • The trial said the increased antibodies did not prevent the spread of Omicron
  • Lead researcher said: ‘For the Omicron variant the vaccine is not good enough’

The study of more than 270 medical staff in Israel found the fourth shot only raised antibodies ‘a little’ compared to those who were triple-vaccinated. Participants given four doses were only ‘a bit less’ likely to test positive for the mutant strain than those who had received three. 

The findings were true for both Pfizer and Moderna, and will reignite the debate about whether constant boosting is necessary. 

Researchers from the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv, who ran the trial, said those who became infected had very mild symptoms or none at all. 

Author Dr Gili Regev-Yochay told a press conference: ‘These are very preliminary results. This is before any publication. But we’re giving it out since we understand the urgency of the public to get any information possible about the fourth dose.’  Continue:
