A Third Of America’s 43 Omicron COVID Cases Had Their Booster Shots

Dr. Anthony Fauci said that authorities are continuing to evaluate whether a booster shot will be required to be considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 as new CDC figures show that a third of Omicron cases had booster shots.  “For official requirements, it’s still two shots of the mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) and one shot of the J&J for the official determination of what’s required or not,” Fauci told ABC News yesterday.  “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,” he said.  “I think we’ll be continuing to evaluate what the official designation is” for official fully vaccinated status, he said.
