Response to RAB910 (Original post)

2. Here is link to the preprint of study on Moderna and Pfizer Boosters.

Omicron is super infectious and two doses are not enough, but Moderna and Pfizer boosters produce neutralizing antibody responses.

" Remarkably, neutralization of Omicron was undetectable in most vaccinated individuals. However, individuals boosted with mRNA vaccines exhibited potent neutralization of Omicron only 4-6-fold lower than wild type, suggesting that boosters enhance the cross-reactivity of neutralizing antibody responses. In addition, we find Omicron pseudovirus is more infectious than any other variant tested. Overall, this study highlights the importance of boosters to broaden neutralizing antibody responses against highly divergent SARS-CoV-2 variants."
